John Prine

Sure, Tommy Prine grew up in Nashville surrounded by music, art, and writing—and it’s certainly no secret that he learned to play guitar by watching his late father, John, picking his own beloved tunes—but summers spent in his mother’s homeland of Ireland lent their own inspiration and ten straight years camping at Bonnaroo introduced Prine to a swath of music not belonging under the greater Americana umbrella.
