12th June 2017
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy recently released Best Troubador, his homage to a long-time hero Merle Haggard. He is now pleased to confirm a new UK live date next month at London’s Union Chapel where he will be supported by London Sacred Harp. This will be Mr Will Oldham’s first solo show in London for quite some time and as is expected with all Bonnie activities, it will be a night not to be missed.
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy
Thurs 27th July @ Union Chapel, London
Support: London Sacred Harp
Best Troubador flips through the Merle Haggard songbook, landing on pages unmoored from their time and located anew. With such prolific catalogue of resplendent songs spanning a nearly fifty year career, Bonnie and the Bonafide United Musicians were tasked with the undertaking the singular and unwavering creativity of such a figure. Best Troubador does just that, representing an earnest and faithful reworking of Haggard’s great songs.
Best Troubador is available on Double LP and CD. You can purchase the album here or here.
