Superwolves, the mysterious duo of iconic iconoclast Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and guitar gunslinger Matt Sweeney, in a very special outdoor show at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine. Legendary West Coast songsmith Little Wings opens. Co-presented by Chocolate Church Arts Center.

16 years after their quiet debut, Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy are back. They look like we do, and may live somewhat the same. Yet, they are multiplied. What once was Superwolf, now are Superwolves.  

In the time since the paradigm-shifting Superwolf record, the duo’s singular songs have found bewildered, unsatisfied champions in Neil Young and Rick Rubin (to name a few) and led Sweeney to collaborations with Johnny Cash, Adele, and Neil Diamond. However, slow-burning cult-status and a who’s who of endorsees has not shifted the ways of the Wolves. Another quiet record arrived in April, perhaps even quieter than the first.  What world, REALLY are Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy from? A place of all-music, knowing no borders and no morals, where all can be destroyed and built again in the name of love and light, together. 

Kyle Field is a visual artist and the songwriter behind the over twenty-year-old group Little Wings. Over the course of more than a dozen albums, he has written a classic cannon of songs that continues to gain listenership to this day. Working without the help of powerful record companies, the songs have earned their place viscerally, person by person, creating a cherished and loyal following around the world. Little Wings has released a half dozen full albums in the last two years and shows no signs of slowing; the songs keep growing.
