Portland-based The Decemberists have partnered with English singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney to create an album which celebrates and reimagines 60's and 70's British folk rock. Front man Colin Meloy had dreamed of having The Decemberists be the Albion Band/Steeleye Span/Fairport Convention to Chaney's role as Shirley Collins/Maddy Prior/Sandy Denny. The results are stunning. The Decemberists with Olivia Chaney will be appearing at The Mondavi Center on August 18th. Please join me this Wednesday (July 26th at 5 PM).
