  • Details

    Two-time Grammy Award® winner John Prine returns to Philadelphia with Emmylou Harris at the Mann's TD Pavilion on June 28, 2020.

    Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” John Prine is a rare talent whose writing is greatly admired by his peers. Performers who have recorded from his extensive catalog, include Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, George Strait, Old Crow Medicine Show, Norah Jones, Bette Midler, Miranda Lambert, and many others.

    With his career spanning more than 40 years, Prine continues to perform at sold out shows all over the US, Canada, and Europe. John has received many awards and accolades in recent times, including his 2003 induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting, and was honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser. Prine has become for many, not just a well loved and appreciated songwriter, but a bonafide American treasure.

    Already celebrated as a discoverer and interpreter of other artists’ songs,12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris has, in the last decade, gained admiration as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. On Hard Bargain, her third Nonesuch disc, she offers 11 original songs—three of them co-written with Grammy- and Oscar-winning composer Will Jennings—that touch on the autobiographical while reaching for the universal.
