With a voice that combines a breathy country-blues vibrato and a quick-changing range, the Bonnie “Prince” Billy touring member’s Half Way Home album was much lauded last year and now she’s over on an Irish tour this May on the following dates.
Dublin: May 2nd // Skinny Wolves presents Angel Olsen & Guests @ Whelan’s (€10)
