Video: William Fitzsimmons – Angel from Montgomery

Here is a lovely way to head in to the weekend with William Fitzsimmon’s cover of Angel from Montgomery, a tribute to the passing of the great John Prine.

He says, “John Prine, like one of my other heroes, Townes Van Zandt, was a once in a generation writer. He distilled emotions down to simple phrases and timeless melodies. He wrote songs that seemed like they existed decades before he even penned them. His work was a constant challenge and motivation to me to be economical and fearless in my own art. I’m honored to be able to cover and share with you my favorite song of his, Angel from Montgomery”.
