Singer-songwriter John Prince is an American treasure, no doubt.
On Sunday, we caught him at Tarrytown Music Hall.
A craggy, gravel-voiced bard of the lost and lonely, Prine is without equal. He played for two hours with his brilliant side men, a guitarist and base fiddler– and he didn’t disappoint. I don’t think Prine is capable of giving a bad concert.
Of the many great songs in his catalog, an absolute classic is the doleful “Hello In There” which is about taking the time to connect with the elderly. He sang it Sunday. Listen to a video version by clicking on Prine.
It seemed fitting that on that same day, The Journal News had a front page story about aging parents.
