“Beautiful and sorrowful, sparse and complex, sacred and profane: this is what to expect from Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.”—Drowned in Sound

Go  here to read a Q&A with Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Ice Creams.

Bonnie “Prince” Billy—aka Will Oldham—performs a special show in our intimate Performance Space accompanied by his close musical cohorts Emmett Kelly (of the Cairo Gang) and Cheyenne Marie Mize from Louisville. This New Year’s treat for his many local fans follows closely on the recent release “Christmas Eve Can Kill You,” Dawn McCarthy & Bonny “Prince” Billy’s revival of a rarely heard Everly Brothers Yuletide lament for a new generation. Catch up on the latest directions from the ever-adventuresome singer-songwriter, as he and his companions spin avant-folk songs out of aching beauty, romance, and contradictory impulses with aplomb.

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
