Seeing him this coming Thursday in Syracuse... This seems banjo related potentially?

John Prine is an "eclectic-kinda-guy" when it comes to music.  
I (myself) don't associate him with banjo - - but others could.  smiley

I don't recall hearing a banjo on any of Prine's recordings, but many of his songs have been covered by bluegrassers.

I've seen JP a number of times & never disappointed. I'm glad to hear he is still touring. It should be a great show. Enjoy.

Mr. Peabodys Coal Train is close enough.

Love JP.

Prine is one of my favorites. I don't know of another musician who's lyrics can make you stop in your tracks the way Prine's always have for me. Enjoy the show!

We play a lot of JP songs with bluegrass instruments.His music falls right off the banjo neck.
I love playing Angel from Montgomery and Paradise.

An American treasure. I've only caught him about a dozen times now. One of the few writers to make me cry. Enjoy!

It not about you playing Prine. Patrick was asking if it’s bluegrass related. Let’s get over ourselves

Everybody plays Prine,Bruce.

Patrick wanted a bluegrass connection to John's songs and I told him about mine.Why do you have a negative opinion about that?

I believe John's brother Dave Prine played banjo on at least one track on "Diamonds in the Rough" back in 1972.

I've always considered the "Diamond" album to be one of the great acoustic recordings of the 70's. Also had Steve Goodman and Dave Bromberg playing on it.
Yet it got next-to-no attention, considering the accolades John received for his first album (the "hay bale" record).
