Whose Cat Is Dead

Relatively new to the scene, the veteran musicians that make up Whose Cat Is Dead are really turning "heads" within the jam community. As a 4-piece act interpreting the catalog of the Grateful Dead, WCID have the luxury of musical space that comes along with a more "stripped down" approach. With a driving, powerful rhythm section, soaring keys, Jerry-like yet still fresh guitar, and some of the best 3-part harmonies in the business, this crew are quickly gaining fans new and old.

Adam Bernstein - drums and vocals

Kimberly Manning - key and vocals

Mark Thackway - guitar and vocals

Mikey Vukovich - bass and vocals

Adam Shier (The Unseen Strangers)

If you aren't yet familiar with The Unseen Strangers you should definitely check them out!


The band was started in 2008 by Adam Shier, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and driving force behind The Unseen Strangers. Adam fell in love with the sound of Bluegrass while attending college in Halifax and was soon recruiting his best friends to be in a Bluegrass band. The band quickly recorded an album and were excited to win a Music Nova Scotia Award in 2009 for Bluegrass/Country Album of the Year. The group has grown immensely from these small beginnings but a similar goal remains, to play new energetic bluegrass music with respect to the incredible lineage of its tradition.
