Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy presents Merle Haggard radio show
18th July 2017
Some 25 years ago, Bonnie 'Prince’ Billy first performed in public by playing a Merle Haggard song. On the recent Best Troubador, he paid homage to his long-time and forever hero, flipping through the Merle Haggard songbook, landing on pages unmoored from their time and located anew.
As part of this celebration of Merle’s music and legacy, we are extremely excited to present the ‘Bonny Billy Best Troubador Radio Show’. An hour long excursion into the world of Merle Haggard with your tour guide Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy offering personal insight on Haggard’s influence. The show also includes two exclusive renditions of Merle songs by Bonny that are not featured on the Best Troubador album.
Also at www.BestTroubador.com, you’ll find a jukebox of the original Merle Haggard songs that Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy covers on the album.
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy plays a sold out solo live show next week in London with support from London Sacred Harp.
