Bonnie 'Prince' Billy

***With a 'true' solo album on the way,
(he performed, recorded, released, and distributed it himself)
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is embarking on
a 4 day mini-tour.

 Performing a solo acoustic set, his
fourth stop will be the Cedar on
Monday, December 16th.***

"the solo acoustic format fits Oldham’s melding of vocals and lyrics. He weaves them together so tightly that it’s hard to tell singer from song, and that’s clearest when it’s just him and a guitar. His voice shakes, stretches and cracks around notes, approaching rather than hitting them, and his words similarly skirt themes and flirt with meaning."
- Marc Masters, Pitchfork
