Dead Horses is one of the four Riverfront Rendezvous feature performances for the Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series.
About the headliner: Originally hailing from a small Wisconsin town made world famous by a pair of overalls (Oshkosh, B'Gosh), the now Milwaukee-based folk band have cultivated a sensibility beyond their years due in part to the powerful literary force that is frontwoman and songwriter, Sarah Vos.
Raised on Bible Hymns by her preacher father, Vos' backstory sounds more like that of an old bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than a young folk singer from Wisconsin. Despite their youth, Dead Horses have crafted a timeless sound, informed as much by modern Americana as it is by traditional roots music. Pairing golden-toned acoustic strings with hand-played percussion and soaring harmonies, their music is sure to tug at your heartstrings.
About the Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series: The Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series is a CREATE Experience supported in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private foundation that empowers towns and cities across America to transform underused public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music. This project breathes new life into Pfiffner Park—a historically rich green space along the Wisconsin River—with the aim to strengthen the local community by helping to create a thriving city center that welcomes people of all walks of life to experience the cultural scene in the historic neighborhoods surrounding the city’s core. Presented by Create Portage County, a nonprofit that leads community development efforts through continued arts advocacy and creative placemaking.
