In memory of John Prine
Friday April 10, 2020

We were terribly saddened to hear of the passing of John Prine. We were so excited that he was coming to Pickathon this year. In all that John Prine has been through, in both art and life, he’s lit the way for the rest of us. In these fragile, uncertain days we’re all facing, his work is a reminder that we don’t have to go it alone. We’re so thankful for all that John Prine made and continues to mean to us and our thoughts, prayers, and genuine gratitude are with his wife Fiona and their family.

Here are a few excellent articles to read about Prine’s legacy:
