A Prairie Home Companion comes to Lubbock, TX
A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor heads to Northwest Texas for its first-ever live broadcast in Lubbock — Saturday, April 27, from the City Bank Auditorium. Special guests include Lubbock’s own The Flatlanders as well as country singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe.
The Royal Academy of Radio Actors — Sue Scott, Tim Russell (the man of many voices), and sound-effects wizard Fred Newman — will be on hand, along with the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, led by pianist Richard Dworsky. Count on the Prairie Home classics — Guy Noir, Private Eye and The Cowboys, along with show “sponsors” Powdermilk Biscuits and Ketchup — and Keillor will share all the latest News from Lake Wobegon during his signature monologue. Check the Prairie Home website, www.prairiehome.org, for more details.
