The Dead South
Nate is a guitar & mandolin playing singer of JUNO award winner The Dead South, a gold rush vibing four-piece acoustic bluegrass set from Saskatchewan, who infuse the genre’s traditional trappings with an air of frontier recklessness, whiskey breakfasts & grizzled tin-pan showmanship. Their sound, build on a taut configuration of cello, mandolin, banjo & guitar, speeds like a train past polite definitions of bluegrass in the grittier, rowdier spaces of traditional world.
