Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio welcomes Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy on Monday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s recent projects in 2016 include the collaborative LP with Bitchin Bajas (Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties); a split 7″ with Oscar Lee Riley Parsons; numerous performances with neo-classical ensemble 8th Blackbird; a collection of recordings, Pond Scum, made over the years under the auspices of John Peel’s BBC radio program; and co-writing and performing “The Dragon Song” in Disney’s Pete’s Dragon movie. 2017 will find Bonnie performing with Bitchin Bajas, Eighth Blackbird, in addition to rare and scattered solo shows.
Bonnie will be passing through the Southeast for a pair of public lectures at Duke University (oh, to be a fly on that wall!) as well as a special Bonnie performance before heading off on a proper tour with stops in the Midwest and Northeast. Early October will also see the release of Songs of Love and Horror, the definitive collection of Will Oldham’s lyrics—spanning three decades of songwriting with annotations that impart new meaning to his music. Copies of the book will be available at every show; this musical and literary combination is not to be missed. It’s been years since you’ve had the option to see Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy raw, live and uncensored, and in intimate settings, so hop to it!
The Other Years from Louisville, Kentucky are a duet born from a sister friendship, two friendly vines headed up the same tree. Their voices combine in many forms, embarking on a journey of song writing influenced by the old time tradition.
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will perform at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio on Monday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m. The Other Years will open the show.
