The Deadly Winters are a five-piece band based in Edinburgh who have been honing their stirring alt-folk sound over a series of rapturously-received albums and EPs.
Armed with swagger, thumping singalong choruses and moments of welcome melancholy and sadness, The Deadly Winters have a spine tingling emotive sound that blends flavours of traditional folk, alternative rock and Americana.
BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Scotland (Roddy Hart, Billy Sloan, Tom Morton and Iain Anderson’s shows), Mike Harding’s Folk Show and pioneering Scottish DJ Jim Gellatly are all champions of the band having play-listed and reviewed their music. They have shared stages with lauded Scottish singer/songwriter Dougie Maclean and The Staves and have appeared at Celtic Connections, Perthshire Amber, Bannockburn Live 2014, Edinburgh’s St Andrew’s Day 2013 and numerous times at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
