John Prine has influenced some of the best songwriters in the world. Many of those songwriters are in Seattle. This October 10th will be Prine’s 66th birthday. Come put a few back with us at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard while local artists cover some of Prine’s best work. 5 of these 7 acts will be backed by Norman Baker & the Backroads with the sweet rhythm section of Baker on bass, and Mark Bateman on drums. Randy Neal plays pedal steel for the Backroads and will be performing his own set in addition to joining all the other acts.
