this solo performance from songwriting legend Will Oldham is pretty much the exact reason why we love our amphitheater stage so much... it's as good as it gets for diving deep into an artist's expression... so before you get ready to dance to Soul Jelly late night... grab a friend, a lover, a partner... sit down, relax and enjoy the raw passion of this artist we call Bonnie Prince Billy. Stoked...!
