Souvenirs: A Celebration of John Prine's Timeless Songs
Souvenirs: A Celebration of John Prine's Timeless Songs
One of the great American songwriters, John Prine, turned 70 in 2016. His work is shaped by his parent's Kentucky hometown and his Illinois upbringing, with influences ranging from country to acoustic folk to rockabilly. Songs such as “Angel From Montgomery,” “Paradise,” “Illegal Smile,” “Sam Stone” and many others have cemented his place on the American music scene for more than 40 years. Expect to hear all of the great tunes above and many more in this concert from some of the finest area musicians.

The show will be anchored by The Old Part Of Town and Palookaville, each performing on their own, as well as combining in various ways to back several Baltimore/DC/Annapolis artists including Angie Miller, Cris Jacobs, Ellen Cherry, and Meg Murray. Their first Prine Celebration was a sellout and it just seemed natural to continue this new tradition.

Palookavile is lead by Howard Markman (Disappear Fear/Freewater) and Glenn Workman (Crack The Sky/Technicolor Motor Home).

The Old Part Of Town is lead by Matt Douglass (Bitter Creek/Red Tape) and Sam Nitzberg (The Charm City Reactors).

Cris Jacobs
Singer-songwriter Cris Jacobs has explored the outer realms of bluegrass, folk, funk, country, blues, soul, and rock with stylistic reverence, adventurous alchemy, and emotional sincerity. Throughout his musical travels he’s amassed a dedicated fanbase engaged by the warmth and high quality of his lived-in songs.

“I’ve always just accepted and respected that evolution is part of the creative process,” the Baltimore, Maryland-based artist explains. “But I’ve made sure that throughout my work, I’ve always been honest. That’s the end goal, writing music that is meaningful to me.”

Cris Jacobs began his career fronting the acclaimed band and award-winning jam band, The Bridge. The sextet released four albums in 10 years, and averaged 200 shows a year. When the band went on permanent hiatus, Cris continued on following the music. In 2012, he issued his solo debut, Songs For Cats And Dogs, a masterful album featuring poignant songwriting, honey and whiskey soaked vocals, burly riffs, dazzling guitar playing, and bucolic pedal steel guitar. Jacobs’s solo career was welcomed by fans and media alike, widening his profile as he appeared on television, on NPR’s Mountain Stage sessions, and was personally tapped by Stevie Winwood and Sturgill Simpson for national tours. Currently, Jacobs is readying his sophomore album.
