This Canadian band guested Tønder Festival in 2016, and there are many good reasons why they have been asked back. The Dead South deliver a raw mix of bluegrass and folk spiced with satire, blood and guts. Add in the energy of a punk band. This band has found its own sound, and they have been described as outlaws, modern hillbillies and “Mumford & Sons’ evil twins.” From Saskatchewan in Canada, they have been playing together since 2012. Armed with guitar, banjo, mandolin, cello and loads of vocal, The Dead South, fronted by singer and guitarist Nate Hilts, have spent the past few years touring Canada, USA and Europe.

Their latest album Illusion and Doubt from 2016, sees the addition of violin and pedal steel guitar. The album hit the top five on America’s Billboard bluegrass hit list. Their only Danish festival concert in the summer of 2018.
