Tommy Prine is John Prine’s son. About a month ago he released the song “Ships in the Harbor”, which is about endings and very much about the death of his father from COVID during the early days of the pandemic. John Prine’s birthday was earlier this week, so it feels only fitting that this song is my New Music Friday selection this week. Honestly it was on my docket for today before I even realized John Prine’s birthday was this week, but that made it seem all the more kismet. It’s an absolutely beautiful song. Tommy Prine is certainly carrying on his father’s mantle. I look forward to hearing more from him.
