from Feast of the Hunters’ Moon (2010)

MY TAKE: Rich but moody, sort of indie-folk goes gypsy. Black Pairie started as an SXSW side project for Decemberists Chris Funk (dobro), Nate Query (bass) and Jenny Conlee (accordion). Good luck to ’em, but this field is probably too crowded for part-timers who don’t have time to hone their sound on the road.
