John Prine Upgrades Bluesfest Performance to a National Tour

Legendary songwriter John Prine has announced shows for Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide while he is in Australia for Bluesfest 2020.

Prine was one of those songwriters the singers gravitated to great songs. Bette Midler covered ‘Hello In There’. Bonnie Raitt’s classic ‘Angel of Montgomery’ was written by Prine.

John Prine was a Chicago native performing in bars in the early 70s when he was discovered by Kris Kristofferson. Just after the release of his first album, Bob Dylan appeared unannounced at one of his shows.

Prine released his first album of original material in 2018. The album ‘The Tree of Forgiveness’ featured appearances from Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Dan Auerbach and Brandi Carlile.
