Billy Prine & The Prine Time Band
Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022 | 8 p.m at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall will welcome Billy Prine & The Prine Time Band Sunday, February 6, 2022, as they present “The Songs of John Prine.”
Billy Prine (the younger brother of John Prine) formed and led his first bar band in Chicago at the tender age of 12. Chicago in the 1960s and early ‘70s was wide open, just as FM radio was evolving, with all types of music, but especially the blues from the famed Chess Records and country music with the National Barn Dance, which was a precursor to the Grand Ole Opry.
Growing up in such a rich musical city allowed Billy to develop his unique style of American roots music and absorb a myriad of influences firsthand.
In the 1990s, Billy took his talents in A&R to Oh Boy Records where he curated and produced the series “Live from Mountain Stage” (the iconic and long-running radio show from Charleston, West Virginia) for Blue Plate Records, which was distributed by Oh Boy Records.
Billy is a natural-born storyteller just like his late, great brother, John, was a natural-born songwriter. During concerts celebrating John’s life in song, Billy tells stories about or surrounding some of John’s most beloved songs before leading his band through his version of John’s timeless masterpieces.
As an example, fans will get to hear about the first time John played his classic song “Paradise” for their father as the family sat around the kitchen table.
