The Canadian band The Dead South, a phenomenon across generations and genres, is returning to Bratislava on June 5, 2024, following a successful concert in 2022. They infuse their music with impact, humor, and a bold manner. The sound of guitars, cello, banjo, kick drum, and mandolin complements strong vocals, the combination of which is pure musical harmony.
It doesn’t matter what you call their music – progressive bluegrass, alternative Americana, country, folk, or western. What matters is that their fans love them!
The Dead South is best defined by where the band comes from. Saskatchewan is a province in the prairies of Canada. Double the size of Germany, but with a population of less than one million. Lots of nature, lots of silence, and plenty of time to fill the silence with sound. And so the four guys found themselves in folk and bluegrass. With humor and charm, they touched millions of listeners around the world. Their album Good Company from 2014 and especially the song “In Hell I’ll Be In a Good Company” hit the charts in Europe and America. The clip for this song has amassed almost 380 million views.
The Dead South reaps success for its highly energetic performances and catchy tunes that will be stuck in your head for a long time. The band’s fans perfectly complete the atmosphere of concerts by cosplaying the band by wearing hats or checkered shirts.
The Canadian country singer-songwriter Corb Lund is set to perform as the support band. Corb Lund comes from a long family line of ranchers in the foothills of the Rockies. His home inspired him to create modern cowboy songs that are laced with authentic and quirky humor. He has released eleven albums, three of which have been certified gold. Corby’s work has over 260 million streams worldwide across platforms. Corb Lund will perform with his band.
