John Prine Sing-Along
John Prine Sing-Along
John Prine is among the most revered and influential singer-songwriters of all time. With songs like “Angel From Montgomery,” “Paradise,” and “Illegal Smile,” he has amassed a legion of devoted fans, from his first album released in 1971 to this year’s “Tree of Forgiveness.”

Prine’s songs are stories in the narrative tradition of the Carter Family, Roy Acuff, and Jimmie Rodgers. Sometimes they’re funny (“Dear Abby”), sometimes poignant (“Souvenirs”), sometimes political (“Your Flag Decal Won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore), and often just fooling around (“Fish and Whistle), but they always feel like stories about people you might know.
Join Berkeley singer-songwriter Clyde Leland (Grampa Clyde of the Freighter Tots toddler song circles), Jacob Leland of The Mosswoods, and local singers John Koch and Ronnie London for the FREE Sunday afternoon sing-along of some of Prine’s most singable tunes.

Clyde Leland (Grampa Clyde) started singing songs with kids about 40 years ago when his own children were in pre-school. In 2015, while singing with his granddaughter’s class, he realized that singing with kids is more fun than teaching law students. So he left his job teaching Legal Ethics in law school to give more time to Sing Along with Grampa Clyde. In addition to practicing and teaching law and working as a legal affairs journalist, he has been a summer-camp song leader and a singer-songwriter performing throughout the Bay Area. A native San Franciscan, he lives in Berkeley.
