(Boston, MA) – With his trademark guitar finger-picking and unmistakable songwriting voice, John Prine continues to mesmerize diverse audiences with his humble poetry, describing often-overlooked crannies of everyday life. With immeasurable accolades, including two Grammys and the distinction of being one of the few songwriters honored by the Library of Congress and US Poet Laureate, Prine is more than a musician…he is an American treasure.
Now over forty years since his remarkable debut, John Prine has released The Singing Mailman Delivers, a two-disc archival set featuring his earliest studio and live recordings dating back to 1970, one year before his premiere album. These tracks reveal a younger Prine as an honest and unassuming songwriter, writing words on his mail route by day and moonlighting as a folk singer in Chicago clubs at night.
John Prine will be joined on tour in Boston by Iris Dement.
