The great American songwriter John Prine (1946-2020) had to cancel his appearance at Tønder Festival in 2019 because of ill health. Instead, Tønder Festival put on a tribute concert for him, and it was a memorable, warm event. Among those taking part were Caitlin Canty, William Crighton, Dan Sultan, Tide Lines, Hudson Taylor, Luke Winslow-King, Max Gomez, Martin Harley, Ryan McMahon Band, Sam Lewis, Poul Krebs, John Smith, Irish Mythen, Troels Skjærbæk & Reuben Alexander. The concert was filmed, and this is the film you can see in Schweizerhalle on Tuesday 25th August in connection with a lecture about John Prine given by Andrew Hartvig Cranfield, Library and Culture Chief in Tønder.
