Bonnie Prince Billy & Dawn McCarthy 2013
Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie "Prince" Billy duets are a sensuous display of give and take that includes everything that's resonating in the room, every surface that's being pressed or rubbed or hit is a part of the action. Their harmonies are in the tradition, but they are their own, not cutting-on-the-dotted-line of Everlys magic. They have their own natural way, and it is infused in every deep moment of every song here.
Bonnie "Prince" Billy 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."
McCarthy's performances draw on many influences, from British, Scandinavian, Appalachian and Eastern European music. Her shows often contain elements of theater—dance and puppet shows are common elements. Her music has been compared to Ewa Demarczyk and to neo-psych-folk artists such as Devendra Banhart and Current 93.
Bonnie Prince Billy and Dawn McCarthy is presented by Whistling Swan Productions.

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
