Why is a Band from Regina, Saskatchewan Called “The Dead South?”

Shouldn’t they be the Dead North? Well, for whatever reason, they are an interesting take on bluegrass music.

This is “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company” from their first album, Good Company, from 2014.

The Dead South is a four-piece acoustic ensemble based in Regina, Saskatchewan. With Nate Hilts’ gritty vocals and aggressive guitar strumming, Scott Pringle’s soaring harmonies and mandolin chops, Colton Crawford’s blazing banjo licks and steady kick drum, and Danny Kenyon’s prominent cello melodies, The Dead South blends elements of folk, bluegrass, classical, and rock which results in a unique, modern, and authentic blend of boot-stompin’ acoustic music.

And because I can’t resist …

And that’s why Regina rhymes with fun.
