Outdoor Concert: Dead Horses with Pat Ferguson

Join us at Sidie Hollow for our Music in the Parks finale! Dead Horses will be joined by Pat Ferguson for an amazing evening! Bring a chair, bring a friend! Food and drink will be on site!

Dead Horses:
Dead Horses isn’t a band in the conventional sense. Rather, it’s an intimate, folk-inspired conversation between two close friends. At its core, the participants are guitarist/singer Sarah Vos and bassist Daniel Wolff. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based pair’s dialogue continues with an eclectic five-song EP, Birds (released February 7), which includes the band’s previously released singles “Family Tapes,” “Mighty Storm,” and “Birds Can Write The Chorus.” Dead Horses weave together a vibrant patchwork of classic and contemporary influences that span trad roots, indie- folk, and other experimental musical idioms. Through it all, the union of Sarah’s emotive songwriting with Dan’s intrepid bass playing transcends the singer-songwriter-with-backup-musicians paradigm.
 
Pat Ferguson:
Originally making waves as a founding member and lead guitarist for longtime Midwest music scene staple, Smokin’ Bandits, LoHi Records recording artist Pat Ferguson (Madison, WI) has emerged as a nationally renowned solo performer, songwriter, and vocalist. His finger and flat-picking style channels Americana, bluegrass, and folk; a signature sound deeply influenced by his Upper Mississippi River musical roots.
