Brooklyn & Portland's Prairie Empire was born out of the wanderings of Brittain Ashford from one coast to another and back. A summer spent in Portland, Oregon yielded a new, eleven-track project with members of Portland based Harlowe and the Great North Woods. Ashford played our SXSW showcase last year after recording some demos in Marfa, TX and her new band Prairie Empire will be performing our fourth music showcase on Friday, March 4th at Brooklyn's Union Pool along with Seattle based Sub Pop recording artist Tiny Vipers and Brooklyn's Natureboy. Brittain Ashford's Prairie Empire creates beautiful folk songs with honest and heartfelt lyrics. She plays the autoharp and ukulele and her band members add delicate instrumentation to the stark and powerful arrangements.
