Summer Love from A Prairie Home Companion (2 CDs)
In the summer of 2010, Garrison Keillor, Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins, the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, and sound-effects artist Fred Newman went on a whirlwind tour of 25 cities in less than two months. The theme was everlasting love; the shows were jam-packed with tender duets and ballads, poetry, and stories of passion and marriage, all done Prairie Home Companion-style.
Now the best performances from that tour are available on this Summer Love collection. Never broadcast and therefore available for the first time on this collection, selections include favorite Prairie Home Companion elements: Guy Noir, “show sponsor” commercials, and the News from Lake Wobegon.
