Dead Horses Duo
Raised on Bible hymns by her preacher father, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos' backstory sounds more like that of an bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than a young folk singer from Wisconsin. Despite their youth, Dead Horses' Sarah Vos and Daniel Wolff craft a timeless sound informed as much by early-American prose as it is modern Americana music.
Dead Horses release 'Cartoon Moon' in 2016, which Wisconsin Public Radio called "equally beautiful and effortless," and that prompted the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to declare Dead Horses a Band To Watch as well as earn them honors for "Best Album," "Best Americana/Bluegrass Artist," and "Best Female Vocalist" at the 2017 WAMI Awards. American Songwriter called Vos "a compelling vocalist...who carries every tune with her husky, deeply emotional tone that feels lived in and real," and the Milwaukee Record swooned for the band's "timeless and downright lovely sound."
Along with touring members, Dead Horses log countless miles of relentless touring, sharing bills along the way with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange, and Elephant Revival in addition to making festival appearances from Bristol Rhythm and Roots to Winter Wonder Grass.
Please Note: In an effort to create the listening room environment, we ask all guests in the main room to limit conversation during the performance. Guests looking for casual dining and conversation may be seated in the adjoining Mountain View Grill.
