If you haven't heard of John Prine, then shame on you. Prine is absolutely brilliant, a true musical force. His music is about as Americana as it gets: a blend of country, folk, and bluegrass. I've been spinning his self-titled 1971 LP since I dug it up at a garage sale a couple of years ago, and never looked back. He's got a ton of material, and everything I've heard has been fantastic.
Playing with him is the excellent guitar player Jason Wilber, who is actually giving away a free CD (just pay shipping) right now on his website. It features a duet with John Prine, so head over there to check it out. It should be a really great show, so don't miss this one. It's a long ways away, but tickets go on sale this week. It might sell out, Prine is popular. You've been warned.
