Alberta Rose Theatre presents the second annual Souvenirs: The Songs & Stories of John Prine.
Backed by an all-star house band, The Not-Ready-for-Prine-Time Players, featured vocalists from the region will perform their favorite John Prine songs.
To his fans, the stories that Prine told about the origins of his songs are every bit as interesting as the songs themselves. Each song will be accompanied by a story that relates to the song and perhaps to the artist’s personal experience with the musings of John Prine.
Led by Jeff Haigerty, (emcee, acoustic guitar & harmonica) The Not-Ready-For-Prine-Time Players are an eight-piece band of working musicians in the Portland scene. It includes Jesse Withers (bass), Fred Stephenson (lead guitar), Colin Hogan (piano & organ), David Owen (drums), Mike Moore (mandolin), Kate O’Brien (violin), and Steely Pete Burak (pedal steel guitar).
Featured artists include Amanda Richards, Kris Deelane, Stephanie Anne Johnson, and Colin Hogan [subject to change]
