Saskatchewan hometown heroes The Dead South are loved for their hot banjo licks, guitar chops, cello melodies and infectious beats, which underscore lyrics that reflect the band’s penchant for spaghetti westerns and grindhouse films. Drinkers, gamblers and murderers with barren landscapes as a backdrop—these are all the good company that the Dead South need inhabiting their little corner of whisky-scented hell. The Dead South will kick your tires with boot-stompin' folk-bluegrass- rock and a dash of acoustic heavy metal.
Boots & the Hoots
Red Deer, Alberta’s trio create swinging old time country and hillbilly heaven; a poised collection of wittily crafted, downtempo western melodies for a cactus in the ass of modern, power-ballad country crooners that forgot the music of their grandfathers.
