Adrian Gross was born in Montreal, lives in Toronto, and has been playing music all his life. As one of Canada’s most sought-after mandolin players, he has developed a reputation for his inventive playing and unique voice on the instrument, always with one eye to the tradition and one looking forward. As one quarter of The Slocan Ramblers, Adrian has performed at music festivals across North America, Europe and beyond, from MerleFest to RockyGrass, earning an IBMA Momentum "Band of the Year" award and a Juno Award nomination. Adrian keeps busy as the Canadian booking agent for The Slocan Ramblers and chamber-folk string quartet The Fretless, and spends his rare free time in town practicing on the banks of the river that flows across the street from his house.
