John Prine

John Prine has been hawking his musical hybrid of affable country simplicity and cynical cosmopolitan wit for more than thirty years, and he shows no sign of losing his edge. Though his last album was released more than four years ago, the country-folk Everyman still manages to consistently pack every venue he plays. Folk fans cherish Prine's dynamic live shows, basking in the glow of an American master with the power to break your heart one moment and bust your gut with laughter the next. It's hard to imagine life without John Prine classics like "Sam Stone" and "Angel From Montgomery," and he still performs them with the same soul, humor and humility made them stand out on his 1971 debut.
