Dead Horses / Ida Jo - Shitty Barn Session No. 133
The Shitty Barn
Spring Green, WI
Share this event:

Raised on Bible Hymns by her preacher father, Dead Horses front woman Sarah Vos' backstory sounds more like that of an old bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than a young folk singer from Wisconsin. But despite their youth, the Milwaukee-based Americana trio has crafted a timeless sound, informed as much by modern folk as it is by the classics. Vos' gospel, living free and unapologetically, is supported with conviction by Peter Raboin on mandolin and guitar, and Daniel Wolff on double bass.

Following the release of "Space and Time" in 2014, Dead Horses have been touring tirelessly, from shows with folksters Swear & Shake to new grassers The Infamous Stringdusters. A sound that is as commanding as it is heartfelt, Dead Horses reached the ears and interest of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) who invited the band to record their third album, "Cartoon Moon," with him in Nashville. Featuring organ and harmonium, Coomer on drums, and Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers) on banjo, "Cartoon Moon" is a masterful achievement from a band that has come into its own.

Ida Jo began setting herself apart long ago. A violinist since the age of 7, her childhood was filled with countless performances on three continents and awards such as the prestigious Emerson Scholarship to Interlochen Arts Camp. Ida Jo graduated college with a degree in violin performance and has since released five full-length records maintaining a consistent touring schedule in support of them. Also an avid yogini, Ida Jo continues to use her music to promote wellness. She has been published in the Huffington Post and has presented at TEDx. She was named 2013 WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year.

Ida Jo was born and raised in fertile music port of Duluth, MN. At age 6, she began begging her mother for violin lessons. Eventually giving in, Ida Jo began classical violin using the Suzuki Method. Besides her classical study she performed and placed in countless Texas style fiddle contests and spent her summers performing traditional Finnish folk music all across the globe.

Her music, led as always by her innovative violin work and her soulful vocals (AV Club), is expressive and groove-oriented, bearing the marks of the southern rock and folk that influenced her. (Think of artists like Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin and The Band.) Her voice has the vibrancy of Adele with the soul of Joss Stone. It has the color of history. (Relate Magazine) Also present are the subtlety and grace of her background in classical violin. Add to that a healthy amount of individuality and stubborn indie spirit and you begin to get an idea of her sound.
