The band recently sold out their debut at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, where they premiered new songs to a packed house. Filmed for later release, their world-class performance was a milestone moment in their remarkable story, which has taken them from the Canadian prairies to iconic stages around the world.  

Over three full-length albums and 2022’s double EPs, The Dead South have won major awards in Canada, hit Gold and Platinum certification in Canada and the USA, and built a global community of fans. With a banjo, mandolin, cello and guitar, a whistle and a kick drum, The Dead South have done bluegrass their way from day one. 

The Dead South’s 2024 Australian tour dates bring new stops in Perth and Adelaide, and a return to Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Stay tuned for more touring news.

Also appearing at Byron Bay Bluesfest

A brotherhood first and foremost, formed through friendship and forged on the road, The Dead South are quite comfortable in their role as a total anomaly most everywhere they go. Their progressive, tightly-constructed approach to acoustic music that favours intricate solos and harmonies has brought Gold and Platinum certified albums and singles and two JUNO Awards for Traditional Album of the Year, the most recent for the Muscle Shoals-made Sugar & Joy (2019). The Dead South followed up in 2020 with Served Live, a double live album that celebrated and supported the live music industry in a time of crisis.

The Dead South followed with double EPs Easy Listening for Jerks, Parts I & II, in which they find their own balance between their punk origins and the bluegrass world of their sound. A strong statement about identity, influence and inspiration, the new EPs show a band stepping out into new musical territory while also staying true to themselves. From Glastonbury to Red Rocks Amphitheatre, The Ryman Auditorium to Brixton Academy, The Dead South have played some of the world’s most iconic stages.”
