Souvenir

John Prine backed by Jason Wilber, David Jacques and Kenneth Blevins.

Thanks to Pat for passing this along: John Prine performing an NPR Tiny Desk concert for us.

The 15-minute set includes a couple new tunes from “The Tree of Forgiveness,” which is due out next month, and a couple oldies, one of them from those long-gone days when I still had hair on my head and not much on my mind.

      I can’t remember what my last guitar was. Some pawn-shop beater, probably. I had an electric once, in high school, because of course I did.

      I shed a lot of gear over the years, moving from newspaper to newspaper. The extended, slow-motion move in late 1980 from Tucson to Bibleburg to Santa Rosa and eventually to Corvallis, Oregon, did for a lot of my stuff. Even dumped a bike on that one, the only time I’ve ever done that.

      The flute is the only musical instrument that’s stuck with me, probably because it’s nearly as portable as a harmonica.

        Ovation Standard Elite LX, circa 2005. One of the few guitars than can stand the huge humidity swings of SE Arizona without doing really weird shit. One of these days I will play it well enough to be a worthy owner. Not today.
