The  Dead South

Regina, Saskatchewan

The Dead South is a folk-bluegrass musical ensemble based in Regina, Saskatchewan initially formed in 2012 as a quartet.  Often jokingly referring to themselves as "Mumford and Sons' Evil Twins", the band played live venues before releasing their debut five-song 2013 EP, The Ocean Went Mad and We Were to Blame.  Nate Hilts and Danny Kenyon came up with the idea for a "rockin' stompin' bluegrass band" in 2012 while playing together in a short-lived alternative grunge band.  The band received a Juno Award for best Traditional Roots Album in 2018 for "Illusion and Doubt".  - Wikipedia
