Dead Winter Carpenters

Friday, April 19, 2024




The Miners Foundry Cultural Center is pleased to present Dead Winter Carpenters on Friday, April 19, 2024. Bar opens at 7:00 p.m. and the Show begins at 8:00 p.m.

Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, CA, americana/roots rock band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. Over the past decade, the band has worked hard to position themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”

That progressive nature shines through loud and clear on the band’s latest release Sinners ‘n’ Freaks which debuted on April 24th, 2020. The 5-song EP is DWC’s fifth studio effort and coincided with the band’s 10th anniversary. The release is a celebration of the hard roads previously traveled and the road that lies ahead. Recorded in January 2020 at Baxter’s Ranch in Auburn, CA, the band found a masterful ally with a keen ear and sensibility in studio owner/engineer Matt Baxter. Born of an organic, roots based approach, Sinners ‘n’ Freaks rings true to the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Learn More About Dead Winter Carpenters

The band’s fourth studio project, Washoe, is a 12-song collection of originals recorded in Reno’s Sierra Sonics Studio (Ozzy Ozbourne, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Collective Soul) and co-produced by Dead Winter Carpenters and Zachary Girdis. The band’s previous albums include the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, Ain’t It Strange (2012), and the much-acclaimed Dirt Nap (2014). They
also released a single “Roller Coaster” in the summer of 2018 featuring alt-country hero Jackie Green on organ.

Reminiscent of genre-benders like Jack White, Chris Thile, and Sam Bush, Dead Winter Carpenters harmoniously blend refined musical ability with a scarcely restrained tendency to let it all hang out. The result is a controlled burn, a riveting sound, and a connection with fans that sells out shows and has the band sharing stages with the likes of Jason Isbell, Easton Corbin, Greensky Bluegrass, Rising Appalachia, The Infamous Stringdusters and Hard Working Americans.

Members include Jesse Dunn (acoustic guitar, vocals), Jenni Charles (fiddle, vocals), Nick Swimley (lead telecaster guitar, vocals), Brian Huston (drums, vocals), and Jeremy Plog (bass, vocals).

A steadily touring band since forming in 2010, Dead Winter Carpenters has entertained growing crowds at notable festivals including High Sierra Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, California Worldfest (CA), DelFest (MD), Northwest String Summit (OR), Harvest Music Festival (AR), WinterWonderGrass (CA and CO), Hangtown Music Festival (CA) and more.

Dead Winter Carpenters is a band engrained with ambition, talent, and authenticity. Look for them to continue to delight – and invite – fans from many music camps.
