BIOGRAPHY

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.

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, and an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting. In 2005, Prine was honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser and in 2016 was awarded the prestigious PEN New England’s Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award . Prine has become for many, not just a well loved and appreciated songwriter, but a bonafide American treasure.
