The intimate gig in the Apostel-Paulus-Kirche in Schöneberg will see Oldham perform a solo concert with support from Lutto Lento & Piotr Kurek.

Will Oldham (born January 15, 1970), better known by the stage name Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, is an American singer-songwriter and actor. From 1993 to 1997, he performed and recorded under variations of the Palace name, including the Palace Brothers, Palace Songs, and Palace Music. After releasing material under his own name, he adopted the “Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy” moniker for the majority of his output since 1998.

Oldham is known for his “do-it-yourself punk aesthetic and blunt honesty,” and his music has been likened to Americana, folk, roots, country, punk, and indie rock. He has been called an “Appalachian post-punk solipsist”, with a voice that has been described as “a fragile sort-of warble frittering around haunted melodies in the American folk or country tradition.”
