They were just nominated for a Juno for Traditional Roots Album of the Year!
Steepeded in tradition, fearlessly creative and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans have become a leading light of today's acoustic music scene. With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans have been winning over audiences from Merlefest to RockyGrass and everywhere in between.

On their much-anticipated new album Queen City Jubilee, The Slocans showcase their unique blend of bluegrass, old-time and folk with deep song-writing, lightning fast instrumentals and sawdust-thick vocals. With their trademark raucous energy, this new album presents The Slocan Ramblers at the top of their game - writing and playing tunes to keep you up all night. This is roots music without pretension, music intended to make you feel something - say hello to your new favourite band.

Connor Foote is a country/folk singer and songwriter from the beautiful scenic town of Cranbrook B.C. Previously, Connor has shared the stage with Valdy, Ken Hamm, Ben Rogers, toured BC & Alberta with Jack Marks and friends, and has spent a lot of time playing shows in Vancouver with his pals. As for influences on his music, whatever your dad or grandfather is into is probably on the right track; but Connor predominantly found his inspiration from grandfather Ed King, an award-winning Country Gospel musician. Ed continues to inspire Connor to work hard pursuing and infusing music into his life. Presently, Connor enjoys playing and writing music directly inspired from what he listens to at the moment. This includes tunes from Townes Van Zandt, to Kris Kristofferson, to Bob Dylan, and everything in between. For now, Connor is bunking in Kimberley, working and playing a few shows here and there. He hopes to release his first album this time next year.
