Kaleidoscope of Sound: L

Bill said, "John Prine is another great storyteller. His songs are Americana folk tales. John Prine was never considered a great "star", perhaps by his own choosing. However, his followers are very devoted. Just by chance, we live just a few miles from the "twin lakes" that this song is about."

  2. I enjoyed his performance and he sounds like he's a witty fun person. I can tell the crowd love him. Great sound. I had never heard this song before. How remarkable that he's singing a story song about lakes near your place. I also love the connection to Canada in his song.
    Thanks Bill.
    Hugs, Julia
