Two-time Grammy Award winner John Prine is a singer songwriter who, from his self-titled first LP release in 1971, has continued to write and perform songs that have become central to our American musical heritage. Classics such as "Angel from Montgomery,"
"Sam Stone," "Paradise" and "Hello in There" speak to the everyday experience of ordinary people with a simple honesty, and an extraordinary ability to get right through to the heart of the listener.
Joining him for this special performance will be Omaha's own indie star Conor Oberst, hailed as "one of the best songwriters around" by UK Sunday Times.
Prine is a rare talent whose writing is greatly admired by his peers. Performers who have recorded from his extensive catalog include Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, George Strait, Old Crow Medicine Show, Norah Jones, Bette Midler, Miranda Lambert and many others.
