John Prine + Kelsey Waldon
The American folk and country musician John Prine is one of the most influential American singer-songwriters of his generation. He is known as a brilliant narrater and is often seen as a “songwriter’s songwriter”.
In his almost fifty year long career John Prine has built an impressive body of work of folk, country and Americana. His fragile, hoarse voice, funny lyrics about life, and serious songs about current events are the backbone of his work. With his 1971 debut album the former mailman from Chicago became the chronicler of everyday life, which resulted in a large number of fans. Classics like ‘Illegal Smile’, ‘In Spite of Ourselves’ and ‘Souvenirs’ are still as fresh and relevant as the day they were recorded. That this artist has managed to stand the test of time he proves with his brand new album “The Tree of Forgiveness”.
Artists like Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen have referred to John Prine as one of their main inspirations.
