Description

Students—welcome to Ann Arbor and to The Ark, a world-class club with music for all ages and tastes. Tonight's show is FREE with student ID.

Dead Horses is vocalist/guitarist Sarah Vos and vocalist/bassist Daniel Wolff, sometimes augmented by other musicians as needed. Originally hailing from a small Wisconsin town made world famous by a pair of overalls (Oshkosh, B'Gosh), the now Milwaukee-based folk band have cultivated a sensibility beyond their years due in part to the powerful literary force that is frontwoman and songwriter Vos. Raised on Bible hymns by her preacher father, she has a backstory that sounds more like that of an old bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than that of a young folk singer from Wisconsin. Despite their youth, Dead Horses have crafted a timeless sound, informed as much by modern Americana as it is by traditional roots music. They've worked with producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) who later invited the band to his studio to record their latest album, "Cartoon Moon," and they're a band that is truly coming into its own.
