Frank Evans

Frank Evans fell in love with banjo at age 10 and quickly developed a passion for old-time Appalachian music. He won the youth banjo contest at the Clifftop Appalachian String Band Festival when he was 13 and later placed second over all. He joined the bluegrass band, the Slocan Ramblers in 2010; their first album Shaking Down the Acorns gained attention world wide and earned them an invitation to open for Steve Martin at the Toronto Jazz festival. Currently, Frank tours world-wide and has played at such noted festivals as Rockygrass, Merlefest, and the Jacobs Ladder Festival. He has taught at Rockygrass Academy and Nimble Fingers Bluegrass Camp. The Slocan Ramlers released their most recent album, Queen City Jubilee in 2018.
