ABOUT THE BANDS
Milwaukee-based band Dead Horses craft a timeless sound, informed as much by modern folk as it is by traditional roots music. Known for high energy performances, as well as intimate listening room experiences, Dead Horses tour tirelessly with heavy pickers and players in tow. From ballrooms to festivals Dead Horses have performed with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange, and Elephant Revival, as well as on mainstages at Bristol Rhythm and Roots, WinterWonderGrass, Americana Music Festival, and Red Ants Pants. Preview their music here.
From the budding music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented trio of multi-instrumentalists from Minneapolis, Minnesota so naturally blends the genres of Folk, Rockabilly, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. Preview their music here.
Local Craft Beers will be on tap and local wines will be served.
