Dead Horses to Perform at St. Norbert College's “Knights on the Fox” Summer Concert Music Series

From St. Norbert College, July 27, 2017

Dead Horses will perform at the "Knights on the Fox" summer concert series on Tuesday, August 1st. Phil Oswald, vice president for college advancement at St. Norbert College will serve as the evening's emcee. The concert will take place at the Ed and Sally Thompson Marina and is free and open to the public.

Raised on bible hymns by her preacher father, frontwoman and songwriter Sarah 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 roots music as it is by the classics. Known for high energy performances, as well as intimate listening room experiences, Dead Horses tour tirelessly with heavy pickers and players in tow-always striving to expand and diversify their live show.

"Knights on the Fox" features live music in a casual atmosphere along the banks of the Fox River. Concertgoers can carry in their own picnic or purchase sandwiches, snacks and beverages at Phil's, St. Norbert's on-campus restaurant located in the Campus Center. Picnicking begins at 5 p.m., followed by the concerts from 6:30-8 p.m. Concerts will be canceled in the event of rain. Check the St. Norbert College website or call for updates on the status of the performance.

The docks of the Thompson marina will be open for those who wish to come by boat. Parking is available in the lots off of Third Street and College Avenue, with handicapped parking in the lot near Old St. Joseph Church. Lawn chairs and blankets are suggested. Follow the signs to find your way to the parking lots.
