Legendary singer-songwriter John Prine's 2018 performance in Denver, in support of his most recent excellent album, The Tree of Forgiveness , was an exercise in understated genius, humor and workingman poetic pathos few artists ever achieve.
Today, November 30, Prine announced that he's coming back to town — and this time, with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks.
The performance will take place July 28, with the rising trio I'm With Her.
