Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine

Posted: June 25th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Articles About Music | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off

An all-star collection of artists have collaborated to pay tribute to the great folk troubadour John Prine.  The project titled, Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine, was released earlier this week (June 22) on Prine’s very own Oh Boy Records.  The album includes many of the current “monsters of folk,”  with Conor Oberst and Jim James’ My Morning Jacket, along with several other indie-folk staples, like Justin Vernon, The Avett Brothers,  Josh Ritter and many more.  I have yet to hear the record but it is already receiving much love from the blogosphere and the greater indie community.  Looks like a fun little adventure for Prine and folk enthusiasts. Be on the look out for Prine himself as he will be on tour this summer in support of his own recent release, In Person and On State.
