With his trademark guitar finger-picking and unmistakable voice, the ultimate singer/songwriter and two-time Grammy-Award winner comes to the Parker Playhouse to mesmerize audiences with his humble yet legendary music including hits like "Dear Abby," "Spanish Pipe Dream," "Angel from Montgomery," "Paradise" and "Sam Stone." Long considered a "songwriter's songwriter," John Prine is a rare talent who writes the songs for which other songwriters would sell their souls. The long list of songwriters who have recorded gems from Prine's extensive catalog include: Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez and many others. "He's so good, we're gonna have to break his fingers," Kris Kristofferson once said after being justifiably stunned by a Prine performance. Bob Dylan remarked, "Beautiful songs . . . Nobody but Prine could write like that."
