Based out of Northeastern Wisconsin, Dead Horses bring a modern approach to American roots music, with a style they’ve dubbed folkgrass. This 4-piece, comprised of 2 guitars, mandolin, fiddle, and upright bass, combine fine introspective songwriting with some of the best pickers and singers in the Midwest. A versatile live act, the Dead Horses have felt comfortable playing everything from a church picnic to a nudist festival. The group is led by the sweet voice of singer/guitarist Sarah Vos, who is the winner of the 2013 Upper-Midwest Singer-Songwriter Competition.
Their debut 2012 album, Back to Life, got heavy airplay on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Simply Folk”. Dead Horses were also nominated for a 2012 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Award in the category of Bluegrass/Americana. Dead Horses have appeared with acts such as Pert Near Sandstone and Big Head Todd and the Monsters, NBC 26, and in 2012 performed on Fox’s “Good Day Wisconsin”. A truly unique new-age stringband, The Dead Horses continue to impress and awe audiences while becoming a real force on the Midwest folk/jam scenes.
