Decemberists Keyboardist Jenny Conlee Diagnosed With Breast Cancer

It was recently announced via a note from the band’s lead singer that the keyboardist and accordion player extraordinaire Jenny Conlee had breast cancer. The band did say that they had no intentions of cancelling any of the upcoming May or June dates (which include a stop at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music in June).
