The wonderful country singer John Prine, who spent so much time in Galway during his later years, will be the subject of a tribute concert in the city’s Town Hall Theatre next month. Meath band Bruised Orange, will be at the venue on Friday, February 16, to perform some of his best-known and most popular works.
Prine wrote about everything: life, love and social issues, and his songs were often an extraordinary blend of humour and darkness.
His fans included Jonny Cash, Bob Dylan and Roger Waters, with Dylan describing his creations as “pure Proustian existentialism. Midwestern mindtrips to the nth degree . . . he writes beautiful songs. All that stuff about Sam Stone, the soldier junkie daddy, and Donald and Lydia, where people make love from ten miles away. Nobody but Prine could write like that”.
