Almanac Music: Thoughts on the death of John Prine

Rick Kane (or Trucker Slim) has been shaken by the death of John Prine. In this emotional and evocative tribute, he explains why John Prine means so much to him, and his family. This is about connectedness and the things that matter. It’s about the place of music and of sadness, and how music builds healing and strength and belief we need and crave. A mighty piece of writing about a mighty man.
