with Valerie June Two time Grammy-winner, singer-songwriter, John Prine, is among the English languages premier phrase-turners.Forty-five years into a remarkable career that has drawn effusive praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and others who would know, Prine is a smiling, shuffling force for good. He is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member whose classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academys Grammy Hall of Fame.Prines songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Tom T. Hall, the Everly Brothers, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Norah Jones, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, and many others. But his genius isnt found in his resume, its found in the brilliance of lyrics from his large catalog of songs.Theres a hole in Daddys arm where all the money goes. Sam StoneIf dreams were lightning and thunder was desire this old house would have burned down a long time ago. Angel from MontgomeryBroken hearts and dirty windows make life difficult to see, Thats why last night and this morning always look the same to me. SouvenirsThe whole thing started early. In 1970, Prine was playing a Chicago club called the Fifth Peg when a young reporter named Roger Ebert walked in, listened and understood.You hear lyrics like these, perfectly fitted to Prines quietly confident style and his ghost of a Kentucky accent, and you wonder how anyone could have so much empathy and still be looking forward to his 24th birthday, Ebert wrote.Soon, Kris Kristofferson walked into a gig at the same bar, encouraged by Prines friend and comrade, Steve Goodman. Prine thought he was done playing that night, but Kristofferson took a chair from off the top of a table and asked to hear some of his songs. The resulting all-night session left ristofferson muttering, Hes so good, were gonna have to break his fingers, but instead of breaking his fingers he served as a megaphone to the world for Prine, who soon garnered a record deal and released the self-titled album that came out in 1971.I bought John Prines first album on LP when it was released, said United States Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, in 2005. I played it as soon as I got home and noticed at once that here was a truly original writer, unequaled, and a genuine poet of the American people Hes taken ordinary people and made monuments of them, treating them with great respect and love.Roger Waters, part of art rock band Pink Floyd, proclaims that Prine, lives on that plane with Neil Young and Lennon.Bob Dylan ponders songs like Sam Stone and Donald and Lydia and says, nobody like Prine could write like that.Indeed, Prines songs are singular and atypical enough to remove themselves from any notion of competition. They stand alone, yet they pal around with the masses.Johns 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 the west Chicago suburb of Maywood, 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.In the late 1960s, after a 2-year tour of duty in Germany, Prine worked as a mailman in his own Maywood neighborhood. He passed mail delivery time by making up songs, and soon began singing those songs in Chi-town clubs.Hank Williams was my dads hero, and I wanted to impress my dad, Prine says. When I started writing my own songs, it was so that hed know that I could. If hed have liked ballet, Id have been Rudolf Nureyev.Prine classic albums include, Diamonds in the Rough (1972) Bruised Orange (1978) Storm Windows (1986) The Missing Years (1991) In Spite of Ourselves (1999) and Fair & Square (2005).He has collaborated with musical heroes from Bruce Springsteen to Mac Wiseman, and has been name-checked in songs by Country Music Hall of Famer, Vince Gill, and contemporary country songbird Kacey Musgraves.Johns music has stayed as relevant as ever. A song called Paradise written by John, for his father, and was a track on his 1971 debut album, has recently reappeared in the headlines. The song is about the devastating impact of coal strip mining, with references to Peabody Coal Company, who, before declaring bankruptcy in 2016 , had fought to keep the lyrics to Paradise from a lawsuit.Prine is an Americana Music Honors & Awards winner for lifetime achievement in songwriting and 2017 Artist of the Year. He was recently awarded the prestigious PEN New England Lyrics Award. He continues to record and perform at sold out shows all over the US, Canada, and Europe.Following the 2015 death of his dear friend and business partner Al Bunetta, John Prine is now President and sole owner of Oh Boy Records.He lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife, Fiona, and enjoys spending time with their three sons, a daughter-in-law, and his grandchildren.John is currently preparing to release his first new album of original material. More details about the album, which is set to be released Spring 2018, will be announced soon.

with The Ghost Of Paul Revere On September 17th, 2013 Old Crow Medicine Show received the great honor of being inducted as the newest members of the historic Grand Ole Opry. Other highlights from the year included winning the Grammy Award for "Best Long Form Music Video" for the film Big Easy Express, and having their classic single, "Wagon Wheel", receive the RIAA's Platinum certification for selling over 1,000,000 copies. The band got its start busking on street corners in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band relocated to Nashville for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry, where they entertained the crowd between shows.It's been nearly fifteen years since these humble beginnings, and the band has gone on to tour the world, sell over 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and play renowned festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Newport Folk Festival. In 2011 Old Crow found themselves embarking on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford and Sons, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. This tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to New Orleans, playing shows along the way. The magic of this musical excursion across America's vast landscape is captured in the Emmet Malloy directed documentary, Big Easy Express. Old Crow Medicine Show now have five studio albums to their name, three of which were released by Nettwerk Records - O.C.M.S and Big Iron World produced by David Rawlings, and Tennessee Pusher produced by Don Was. In 2012 Old Crow released Carry Me Back, on which they continued to craft classic American roots music while pushing themselves in new directions. The band's newest album, Remedy, released by ATO Records and produced by Ted Hutt represents a new stretch of road in the timeless journey of a rambling string band.

with Cave Bees Rough Francis is a rock-n-roll band from Burlington (VT) formed by three brothers and two of their close friends. The young Hackneys originally started the group as a tribute to their father and uncle's 1970's proto-punk band Death. After a few tribute shows, the group began to write and record their own music. The loud screams and maximum volume of Rough Francis still echoes Deathbut they also manage to crystalize a unique sound of their own, channeling live energy from 60's garage rock, Motown and 80's Hardcore.
