Almost 50 years ago — on July 6, 1974 — author and humorist Garrison Keillor hosted the first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion, and the perennially popular weekly radio show remained on the air until July of 2016. The idea for APHC grew from a piece he wrote for The New Yorker magazine about the Grand Ole Opry’s final show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
The APHC 50th Anniversary Tour leads up to the half-century milestone in the summer of 2024. On January 11, Garrison and his rollicking troupe will be at the historic Ryman. Joining them are singers Heather Masse and Christine DiGiallonardo, mandolin ace Sam Bush, fiddle maestro Stuart Duncan, and Chuck Mead and His Grassy Knoll Boys, with their exciting mix of honky-tonk, rockabilly, and roots-driven music.
The Royal Academy of Actors (Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and sound-effects wizard Fred Newman) will be there, along with music director/keyboardist Richard Dworsky leading the band.
GARRISON KEILLOR is America’s favorite storyteller. For more than forty years, as the host of A Prairie Home Companion, he captivated millions of listeners with his weekly News from Lake Wobegon monologues. He is an essayist, columnist, Substack blogger, and writer of sonnets, songs, and limericks. And he is the author of more than two dozen books, including Lake Wobegon Days, That Time of Year: A Minnesota Life, Boom Town: A Lake Wobegon Novel, Serenity at 70, Gaiety at 80: Why you should keep on getting older and Cheerfulness (2023).
