You won’t see many white sheep at this weekend’s  Black Sheep Gathering at the Lane County Fairgrounds. The show was founded 41 years ago to preserve the genetics of black, brown and grey animals.

The event began in the mid-1970s with gatherings held at people’s homes. It’s grown every year and this year will take over the convention space as well as the expo barns at the fairgrounds. Wayne Thompson has been involved for 35 years:

The featured band Friday evening will be Eugene’s own Sol Seed, who start at 7:30 p.m. They’ll also perform at the Kenneth B. Gallery in Florence on Saturday, February 7th. They visited the KLCC studios to perform two songs live, and spin one from their CD Family Tree.

The featured band on Saturday night at KLCC’s Microbrew Festival is Jelly Bread, a high-energy band from Reno who merge funk with rock and Americana. Guitarist Dave Berry speaks with Eric Alan about their unique and funky musical stew.  Jelly Bread also performs in Bend on Friday evening, at the Volcanic Theatre Pub.

They’ve been voted the Best Band in Eugene two years in a row in the annual Eugene Weekly Readers Poll, as well as winning the Weekly’s “Next Big Thing” contest this year.
