Bruised Orange

Crumlin Road Gaol Proudly present “Bruised Orange”

John Prine was an American singer-songwriter of country-folk music. Four times Grammy award winning artiste, he is widely cited as one of the most influential songwriters of his generation. Prine was known for his humorous lyrics about love, life, and current events, as well as serious songs with social commentary and songs that recollect sometimes melancholy tales from his life. Many artistes such as Jonny Cash, Bob Dylan and Rogers Waters cite John Prine as one of their main influences.

Bruised Orange, is a John Prine Tribute band based in Co Meath comprising seasoned musicians with vast experience in the music business and an admiration and affection for John Prine. ​

The show is fronted by Mike Mack McGarry who accurately reflects John’s vocal range with a similar ease of delivery, an affected twang and drawl; which thrive off a peculiar, domestic relation to country, folk, rhythm and blues. His story telling and short antidotes are also a testament to a Bruised Orange live show.

This is a show not to be missed so early booking is recommended.
