Review and Photos by Bob Adamek –

George Porter Jr. has reconstituted his band the Runnin’ Pardners, and they are playing the best that funk has to offer. After some gigs in their native New Orleans, George took his band on the road and the first stop was a two night stand at Baltimore, MD’s 8X10 club. This was an ideal place for their national re-launching. I have seen shows at the 8X10 for three years now and have yet to be disappointed. This is more than your corner bar. I find it to be filled with knowledgeable music fans, eager for the quality acts that Abigail Janssens routinely puts into the small, intimate club. Read more

Nashville, TN – January 26, 2010 – Sugar Hill Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Feast of the Hunters’ Moon, the debut album from Portland, Oregon-based Black Prairie. Featuring three-fifths of The Decemberists and two of the city’s finest folk stylists, the heavily acoustic debut was produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie) and 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. Read more
