Dead Horses Returns for 2018
Dead Horses is coming back to the fest for the second time, and we are excited to welcome back this fine Wisconsin treasure and WAMI award winning group. They have been hop scotching the nation with release of their 3rd album My Mother the Moon which NPR Music described as “evocative, empathetic storytelling” and Rollingstone called “a beautifully uncluttered collection of songs.” Sarah Vos brings her personal hymns and rich vocals wrapped with impeccable backup from Daniel Wolff for a intense emotional and energetic performance.
