The loss of John Prine robbed the world of a truly unique voice and one of the finest song writers of his generation. Prine had the rare ability to touch the soul of his listeners with his bitter sweet and often humorous stories of everyday loving and living.
Belfast songwriter hpw Anthony Toner celebrates the man and his work featuring songs from throughout his career including classics from Prine’s 1971 self-titled debut (Sam Stone, Hello in There) right through his career (Angel from Montgomery, Souvenirs, Grandpa Was a Carpenter) to selections from the stunning final album The Tree of Forgiveness.
Anthony last performed a series of Toner Sings Prine for the artistes 70th in 2016. “It’s my most requested show. So many people have me asked when I’m going to do one again. It is a joy to revisit these songs”.
