Dead Horses and Kate Rhudy play Cafe 939
April 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Dead Horses is a folk band from Wisconsin, known for the haunting vocals of frontwoman Sarah Vos, evocative storytelling, and a sound that bridges indie folk and their Midwestern approach to Americana. They’ve gone from touring with friends such as Mandolin Orange and Trampled by Turtles, to performing at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and opening for The Who.
Lyrically, Dead Horses often explores thought-provoking subjects such as the human condition, personal musings, and observations of the current American experience. Their third and most recent album My Mother the Moon is inspired by the personal struggles that Vos has faced in recent years, and bridges together elements of traditional roots with modern indie folk. The album has received considerable critical acclaim.
Named “one of the Triangle’s sharpest young songwriters” by WUNC and INDY Week, Kate Rhudy is bringing a fresh perspective to Americana music. She worked alongside producer Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange on “Rock N’ Roll Ain’t For Me”, her 2017 debut. The single got placed on Spotify’s “Infinite Indie Folk” playlist and has received positive responses from critics. Rhudy just finished up a tour with Mandolin Orange, and will be releasing a new single and forthcoming 7″ release in March.
The show starts at 8:00 p.m. EDT and you can stream it here.
