With well-constructed melodies and lovingly crafted stories, The Deadly Winters are part Folk-Rock, part Americana. They bring you tales of sorrow, love, debauchery and murder.
…..in a very catchy, foot-tapping way.
BBC Radio One, Radio Scotland (Roddy Hart, 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 previous releases. The Ters’ have raised people’s awareness and expectations of how Folk-Music continues to advance with the times.
The band enjoy their time on stage and they look to bring everyone along on the journey with them. They have shared stages with lauded Scottish singer/songwriter Dougie Maclean and The Staves and have appeared at Celtic Connections, Perthshire Amber (Dougie MacLean Festival), Bannockburn Live 2014, Edinburgh’s St Andrew’s Day 2013 and numerous times at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Since 2011 the band have released 2 albums, a single and an EP. A new 4 song EP, “Table In The Corner” was released worldwide on 6 November 2015.

“acoustic folk-rock loveliness”
“The divine sound of The Deadly Winters. A sing-a-long song if there ever was one”
Jim Gellatly (Amazing Radio, Scottish Sun)
“Melodic and evocative of a warm winter room at dusk for some reason, the chorus will put you in mind of an acoustic Dexys whilst the melody lines will call to mind an early Badly Drawn Boy.”
Gill Mills (Amazing Radio)
