Listening to Black Prairie's debut, Feast of the Hunters' Moon, is like walking onto the set of an HBO show about fear, longing, betrayal and loneliness. The music created by this Portland, Ore.-based quintet sounds as if it comes from a different time and place.
According to dobroist Chris Funk, that's the point; he says the sound Black Prairie makes 'bridges the music of Clarence White and Ennio Morricone.' In other words, 'it's a sound which defies any kind of genre characterization.' - NPR
