Hailing from Rossland BC in the West Kootenays, Five Horse Death are the original ‘Red Mountain Criminals’. All seasoned musicians in their own right, they combine elements of bluegrass, riff driven rock and roll, country and a good spoonful of funk, to get your booties shaking.
Bradley Mackay’s soulful original songwriting and rustic vocals are well supported by Gabe Gaudet (The Toques) on banjo and guitar and a water tight rhythm section. Come get a feel of what its like to be a Ski Refugee.
