      The sound was great but there were some latency problems with the video/sound sequence. But I watched the entire program and would again. I wonder how that issue could be solved.

      The music was great and the sound quality was good. However, the video was very choppy which takes away from the live music experience. I've much would've preferred watching them on YouTube with better quality video. Also, as they mentioned during the concert. The audience interaction is very difficult when you're trying to play the music get ready for the next song, tuning and everything. I would suggest they always have a kind of moderator that is watching the comments and can call them out to the players and get feedback or type in that feedback for the people watching. That would take full advantage of the "live" experience.

Dead Horses is a young acoustic band with a cultivated folk sensibility well beyond their years. Hailing from a small Wisconsin town made world famous by a pair of overalls, the self-proclaimed folkgrass musicians craft narrative driven songs embellished with skilled picking and fiddling on their second album, Space and Time, set to release October 14, 2014.

The immediate appeal of Space and Time is Sarah Vos, the golden-haired songstress who sings Dead Horses’ tuneful melodies with ease and sincerity. Her voice is the crown jewel--it has a penetrating bite that burrows under the skin. Submit yourself and you’ll understand the hype. Vos (whose musical influence reads like most early-American folk musicians) was raised by a preacher father and spent a good part of her childhood singing bible hymns. Her gospel, living free and unapologetically, is supported with conviction by Tim McIlree on fiddle and mandolin, Peter Raboin on acoustic guitar and Daniel Wolff on double bass.

From songs of protest “To A God Unknown” for spiritual freedom (“Yes, I am sinking--Yes, I am free”), to a soulful cry for self-acceptance in every “Sad Story,” Dead Horses wear their hearts proudly on their plaid sleeves. The band's musical nuances enhance Vos’ homespun tales--be it in the driving string work in “Cosmos,” which creates an atmosphere of unearthly wonder, or the soaring, fluttering fiddle in “Glitterbug.”

Early Praise for Space and Time:

"Beautiful and effortless."
- Stephanie Elkins, "Simply Folk" Wisconsin Public Radio

"Beautiful harmonies, great playing and song-writing"
- Steve March-Tormé, 91.1FM The Avenue

Musical cues range from old-time porch songs “Lay Me Down” and “I Will Walk,” complete with four-part harmonies, to the blues-influenced strut in “Old Soul,” to the sweet, summery feel of “Tops” and “ I Am Not.” The versatility of Space and Time creates a wonderfully captivating album that is a welcomed addition to the canon of folk music.

Since forming in 2010, Dead Horses have performed more than 400 shows across the Midwest and have re-emerged, focused and determined, as a quartet since releasing their debut album, Back to Life, in 2012.
