John Prine and Nanci Griffith were both humble masters of the story. They dug deep into the places where most were afraid to go. Emotional depth, keen observations and wry humor brought their music to life and hit an emotional bone. These are the writers who gave us “Angel from Montgomery,” “Sam Stone,” “Love at the Five & Dime,” “Trouble in These Fields, and many more. It’s the Blue Canvas Orchestra's great honor to present a tribute to our lost songsmiths. Both John and Nanci performed at the Big Top several times – amazing memories!

Featuring: Ed Willett, Molly Otis, Phillip Anich, Tom Mitchell, Jack Gunderson, Betty Ferris, Yazmin Bowers, Danielle "Diamond" Nepstad, Billy Knoblauch, and Scott Kirby
