will co-headline with Conor Oberst
on October 5
at The Greek Theatre
in Los Angeles.
With his trademark guitar finger-picking and unmistakable songwriting voice, John Prine
continues to mesmerize diverse audiences with his humble poetry, describing often-overlooked crannies of everyday life. With immeasurable accolades, including two Grammys, Prine is a rare talent who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for.
John Prine's extensive catalog has been recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon and even ... moreConor Oberst, who contributed "Wedding Day In Funeralville" to the Prine celebration CD entitled Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows in 2010. Recently honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, Prine has been elevated from the annals of songwriters into the realm of bonafide American treasures.
Hot on the heels of his new record, Upside Down Mountain, (available May 19 on Nonesuch Records), Oberst kicks off a world tour in support of the new album. PRESS HERE to stream the album track "Hundreds of Ways" and PRESS HERE to hear "Governor's Ball."
