Event Details

John Prine is widely cited as one of the most influential songwriters of his generation. Essentially creating the “Americana” & “Roots” genres of music with his mixture of Country, contemporary & Folk music.

The 4-time Grammy Award winner & Lifetime achievement recipient was known for humorous lyrics about love, life, and current events, as well as his serious songs with social commentary and songs that recollect sometimes melancholy tales from his life.

According to songwriter Bob Dylan, “Prine’s stuff is pure Prussian existentialism, midwestern mind trips to the nth degree… And he writes beautiful songs…”

Join us as we celebrate & elaborate on the beautiful songs of one of the finest songwriters of our generation. “In Spite of Ourselves” brings together some fine Canadian songwriters & friends of various genres, to enjoy stories and songs about the fabulous John Prine. They’ll be bringing the audiences along and having them join in the fun with stories and song.

Join Blair Packham (The Jitters), Bill Craig (The Irish Rovers) Kirsten Jones & 2 X JUNO nominee Johnny Max, as they perform and present their favourite and quirky John Prine Songs.
