The Slocan Ramblers

The Vancouver-based Lonesome Town Painters are unapologetically bluegrass, with a style that hearkens back to the classic sound of the music’s original founders. Band members are Angelo Eidse (guitar), Patrick Bartel (banjo), Jeremy Freeman (mandolin) and Fred Beach (bass). 

”Unlike some of their contemporaries, they make no attempt to veer from the template or add any unexpected elements to the mix. Rather, they do the opposite by simply adhering to a familiar formula. It works to their advantage. Every offering sounds like a standard, one that’s practically indistinguishable from any of the music made by the masters…a singular spirit of classic bluegrass through its emphasis, execution, and articulation.”

 – Lee Zimmerman, Bluegrass Today
