The Dead South are a four-piece acoustic ensemble from Regina, Saskatchewan, with a classic folk sound.
Boasting gritty vocals, aggressive guitar strumming, mandolin chops, banjo licks and a steady kick drum to fuse it all together, The Dead South are delivering a unique sound. Having been recognised for their raw talented, the group have been featured in a number of magazines, newspapers and other publications across the province. In addition to their extensive editorial coverage, The Dead South have also graced the radio, featuring on stations such as 104.9FM The Wolf, CBC Radio 2 and CBC Radio 1 in Saskatchewan.
The Dead South have recently been causing a stir online with their song ‘In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company’. Labelled as bluegrass, a form of American roots music related to the country genre, the song has been causing many fans to question the authenticity of the bluegrass affiliation. With influences of Irish, Scottish, and later, African American, the lines begin to blur.
