The band Black Prairie began as a spin-off from the Decemberists, but has developed an equal life of its own. The band’s sound has moved from instrumental string-band roots into edgier rock territory and vocals in recent times, especially on their fourth and newest CD, Fortune. Before performing in the Jaqua Concert Hall of the Shedd Institute in Eugene on November 20th, they joined Eric Alan in KLCC’s SELCO Performance Hall, including Jenny Conlee-Drizos (accordion vocals), Chris Funk (mandolin), Nate Query (upright bass), Annalisa Tornfelt (violin, vocals), Jon Neufeld (guitar) and John Moen (drums).
