Why See Holiday Cheer for FUV?
John Prine Headlines 90.7 WFUV's Annual Holiday Show
The home of musical discovery at Fordham University, 90.7 WFUV is back with its popular holiday concert, this year featuring Grammy Award-winning Americana singer songwriter John Prine, bluegrass rockers The Lone Bellow and rising garage rock diva Shannon Shaw. As well as being a memorable night filled with country-tinged songs and fire side-esque storytelling, the annual bash raises funds for the radio station, which has been the campus voice since 1947.
Drawing on the proud traditions of his midwestern roots, John Prine fuses wit, empathy and authenticity with strains of folk rock, country, R&B and rockabilly. He cut his teeth as part of the Chicago folk music scene of the late 60s, catching the ear and making a fan out of Kris Kristofferson, who was instrumental in helping Prine secure a recording contract. Five decades and numerous accolades later and the iconic performer has solidified his status as one of America's greatest living singer songwriters thanks to a storied legaxy and stand out hits Hello In There, Dear Abbey and Grandpa Was A Carpenter.
