John Prine, one of the most revered singer-songwriters of his generation, died in April last year age 73. The two-time Grammy-winner was honoured earlier in 2020 year with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy, and in 2019 was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. In his humble, hilarious way, Prine was one of America’s greatest songwriters.
On Saturday afternoon we'll be presenting a special tribute concert - following the amazing specials we've put on in the past - including Bob Dylan's 75th, and Woodstock @ 50. Festival artists, including Blair Dunlop, The Henry Girls, Winter Wilson and Ali Russell, will come together to sing a few of Prine's greatest songs - and there are a fair few to choose from. They may even throw in a couple of Steve Goodman songs - a friend and collaborator of John's from the early years.
Not to be missed!
We've put together a collection of classic Prine on the webpage here - if you don't know many of his songs, then this page will be a great place to start.
