MAGICAL LATE PERIOD JOHN PRINE BROADCAST FROM 1996

Founded as “The Stars Factory” in 1983, Frutigen in Switzerland held its first Singer-Songwriter Festival in 1987. Set up as an initiative to raise the cultural standing of the area, Frutigen welcomed a vast array of big names during the event’s tenure, including Steve Earle, Roseanne Cash and Kris Kristofferson. In 1996 John Prine, still then one of America’s most influential singer-songwriters, made an appearance to rapturous applause.

Prine had remained busy throughout the 1990s, having teamed up with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ bassist/producer Howie Epstein twice; firstly on 1991’s Grammy Award-winning The Missing Years, and again in 1995 with Lost Dogs And Mixed Blessings, which also received a Grammy nomination and became Prine’s first charting album since 1980’s Storm Windows.
