Miami Folkways, a free folk music festival, features Bonnie Prince Billy, Miami Sound Choir, Inez Barlathier, Stillblue, and more. The man who sings and composes under the name Bonnie "Prince" Billy and acts under the name Will Oldham has, over the past three-plus decades, made an idiosyncratic journey through, and an indelible mark on, the worlds of indie rock and independent cinema. With his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity; his brilliance has captivated fans and made Bonny one of our most influential and beloved songsmiths. Miami Folkways: Sounds Like Home is an inaugural Folk Festival, presented free as part of Miami Beach Arts in the Parks, and produced by Rhythm Foundation, FIU Wolfsonian Humanities Lab and in partnership with WLRN-FM's weekly Folk and Acoustic Music Program.FREE RSVP
