Irish Monday night Band Tramyard paying tribute to the late John Prine by covering the song People Puttin’ People Down.
Featuring musicians Steve Milne (Piano), Marty McDermott (Bass), Mary Duff (Harmony Vocals), Jordan Mogey (Lead Vocals), Aoife Cunningham (Bouzouki & Harmony Vocals), Ciara Cunningham (Accordion & Harmony (Vocals), Kevin Logue (Guitar & Harmony Vocals), Stuart Gray (Guitar) and Des Lacey (Drums), the group initially got together over Summer 2020 to lay down their version of the John Prine song “People Puttin’ People Down”. Initially the recording was a personal endeavor that was not intended to be released. But the love of the Irish people to John Prine made them changed their mind.
Commenting on the release, producer Steve Milne said: “Tramyard is made up of a number of well-known Irish musicians. Professionally we are very diverse, but we all really love this kind of old Country/Roots/Americana style. So this was an opportunity for us to jam together. John Prine of course was a great musician, a great performer, and a great songwriter, who always had a lot of appreciation for the music scene in Ireland. It was a big loss when he passed away in April 2020. “People Puttin’ People Down” was an opportunity for friends to get together and explore some of John’s great songwriting gems in our own way.
