Presenting a new, reimagined approach to the band’s critically-acclaimed folk sound, with special guests Ernest Brusubardis IV (violin), Viktor Brusubardis (cello), and Jamie Gallagher (percussion).
Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.
Described by NPR Music as “evocative, empathetic storytelling,” Dead Horses earned praise from Rolling Stone Country as one of their “Artists You Need to Know in 2018.” Respected roots music journal, No Depression, included My Mother the Moon is its “Best Roots Music Albums of 2018 [So Far] list, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has claimed the album to be “one of the best local albums of the year, and one of the best albums of its genre period.”
2018 was a big year for the Wisconsin-based duo, including their Red Rock Amphitheatre debut, shows with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange and Rhiannon Giddens, and a breakthrough streaming fanbase worldwide (nearing 1-million monthly listeners on Spotify). We’re thrilled to welcome Dead Horses to Mineral Point to play for you, and for what we know will be an unforgettable evening of music and storytelling.
