Idaho native Justin Ringer fronts the 5-piece post-folk outfit Horse Feathers, based out of Portland, Oregon. Their 4th album "Cynic's New Year", on the Kill Rock Stars label, captures the murky, heavy, minor-key mood of many Pacific Northwest bands, but also draws heavily from Appalachian folk inspirations. They play Asheville Wednesday night.
Wednesday, May 16th, live at 3pm: HORSE FEATHERS
