Black Prairie (feat. members of The Decemberists) - April 24th at Bootleg
Featuring three-fifths of The Decemberists and two of Portland’s finest folk stylists, Black Prairie - whose debut was released by Sugar Hill Records, and produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie) - embodies the rich sonic landscape of the Portland music scene while integrating the diverse backgrounds of its members. As described by dobroist Chris Funk, the band’s sound “bridges the music of Clarence White and Ennio Morricone” in a way that defies genre characterization.
