Reply to "What concerts have you been to lately?"

Have John Prine coming up June, 1.

Psyched for a couple of reasons.

First, I've seen him 20+ times and have never been disappointed. Not even close. He's not getting any younger, either.

Second, I'm taking my youngest granddaughter with me. She has a beautiful voice, and last year she came over for a sleepover and heard me plunking Fish and Whistle on her way into the house. She said the song sounded "cool," so we spent a couple of hours working on it, I played, and she sang for her parents when they came to pick her up the following afternoon. A truly wonderful rendition, if you allow for the poor guitar picking... Roll Eyes

I don't think anyone, including Mr. Prine has ever delivered this line with more feeling:

Then I got fired for being scared of bees
And they only give me fifty cents an hour...
