John Prine remembered one year after his death

John Prine died on April 7, 2020. I was fortunate enough to see him perform several times. I saw him at the Philadelphia Folk Festival in the early 1970s and remember that he sang “Please Don’t Bury Me” and “The Accident” before they were released on Sweet Revenge in 1973. I saw him at the Academy of Music around 1976 with Steve Goodman. They both performed solo with acoustic guitars and did the encore together. The last time I saw him was at Pier Six in Baltimore in 2011.

If you don’t know Prine, I would start with his first album John Prine from 1971. It has many of his best songs such as “Angel from Montgomery”, “Sam Stone” and Hello in There”. What a great singer and songwriter.
