Anthony Toner Sings John Prine

Fri 20 Nov | 8.00pm | £10.00

 

The loss of John Prine during the pandemic
robs the world of a truly unique voice, one of the finest songwriters of his
generation. Belfast-based songwriter Anthony Toner, a long time Prine fan,
offers an evening celebrating the man and his work, featuring songs from
throughout his career, including classics from Prine’s 1971 self-titled debut
(‘Sam Stone’, ‘Hello in There’) right through his career (‘Angel from
Montgomery’, ‘Souvenirs’, ‘Grandpa Was a Carpenter’) to selections from the
stunning final album, The Tree of Forgiveness. Anthony performed a
series of ‘Toner Sings Prine’ shows when John Prine turned 70 in 2016:
‘It’s my most re-requested show,’ he says. ‘So many people have me asked when
I’m going to do one again – I never thought it would be under such sad
circumstances.’
