When John Prine lost his fight against COVID-19 in April last year, music fans around the world were bereft at the passing of a truly great song-writing genius.
The musical legacy of the former postman from Illinois will endure for generations in the beautiful simplicity of songs like Sam Stone, Lake Marie and Paradise. Today we celebrate that legacy in the company of Illegal Smile, Ireland’s foremost interpreters of Prine’s work featuring Barry Johnston, Davy Neill, Michael Conway, Sam Davidson and Ali Mooney. Pour yourself a Handsome Johnny – John’s favourite (Vodka, Ginger Ale, lime) and settle down for an evening of great music.
Date: Saturday 27 March 2021
Time: 19:30 to 21:00
