John Prine

Two time Grammy-award winner, John Prine, is a singer songwriter who, from his eponymously titled first LP release in 1971, has continued to write and perform songs that have become central to our American musical heritage. Classics like, ‘Angel from Montgomery’,‘Sam Stone,’ ‘Paradise,’ and ‘Hello in There’ speak to the everyday experience of ordinary people with a simple honesty, and an extraordinary ability to get right through to the heart of the listener.

Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” John Prine is a rare talent whose writing is greatly admired by his peers. Performers who have recorded from his extensive catalog, include Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, George Strait, Old Crow Medicine Show, Norah Jones, Bette Midler, Miranda Lambert and many others.

“He’s so good, we’re gonna have to break his fingers,” Kris Kristofferson said after witnessing a Prine performance.

Bob Dylan remarked, “Beautiful songs… Nobody but Prine could write like that.”

But long before the awards and accolades, the concerts and many albums, John Prine trudged through snow in the cold Chicago winters, delivering mail across Maywood, his childhood suburb.

“I always likened the mail route to a library with no books,” says John Prine. “I passed the time each day making up these little ditties.”

John’s parents, William Prine and Verna Ham Prine migrated from Paradise, Kentucky in 1934, joining the many others chasing work in the industrial north. They settled in a west Chicago suburb, and raised four boys. John and his brothers – David, Doug, and Billy – grew up in a close, loving extended family where country music, the Grand ‘Ol Opry, good Southern cooking, and annual visits ‘home’ to Kentucky were as naturally part of their lives as Chicago hot dogs and baseball!

With his career spanning more than 40 years Prine continues to perform at sold out shows all over the US, Canada, and Europe. Among the many awards and accolades John has received in recent times include is his 2003 induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting and was honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. Prine has become for many, not just a well loved and appreciated songwriter, but a bonafide American treasure.

John lives in Nashville, TN with his wife , Fiona, and enjoys spending time with their 3 sons, daughter-in-law, and grandson.

  • One of the best concerts I have ever been to

    3 May 2017

    Seeing John Prine Live at the London Palladium was just sheer joy and an honour. Personally I love John Prine's voice in his older years than i do his younger. So great to actually see him, playing his guitar in that beautiful way, watch his face when singing. He has so many incredibly great songs that it was a feast for the ears and heart. He is funny too and loved the way he moves on stage. John Prine is a total legend for reason, an under the radar legend in London it seems though, although of course it was a full house. Amanda Shires was fabulous as suport, particularly liked her fiddle playing with JP. Everyone who loves music should see John Prine and get to know him - songs and lyrics are some of the best ever written.

    An excellent performance. Had wanted to see him for a long time and was not disappointed. However the support Amanda Shires did not come up to expectations. She did all sad songs on a ukulele which got boring!!!!

    John Prine is a star.His heartfelt songs,some whimsical,some reflective , are as relevant today as when they were written,the best of them many years ago.A beautifully delivered show in the hallowed London Palladium, Prince was ably assisted by a tight backing band featuring longtime guitarist Jason Wilbur. Five Stars.If you get a chance to see John Prine,take it.
