Duet singing, improv, poetry, foolishness, and the News from Lake Wobegon.

A Prairie Home Companion’s kicks off the Radio Romance Tour 2013, a 26-city, 27-concert, 30-day, coast-to-coast bus tour that will run from Washington to Maine. Starring host and writer Garrison Keillor, comedian Fred Newman, Richard Dworsky and the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band with guitarist Pat Donohue and violinist/mandolinist Richard Kriehn, these nonbroadcast shows offer more than two hours of duet singing with singer/fiddle player Sara Watkins, plus absurd improv with sound effects, Guy Noir Private Eye, poetry, outright foolishness, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
Garrison Keillor was born in 1942 in Anoka, Minnesota, and began his radio career as a freshman at the University of Minnesota. He went to work for Minnesota Public Radio in 1969, and on July 6, 1974, he hosted the first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion. Today, some 4 million listeners on more than 600 public radio stations tune in to the show each week. His many books include Lake Wobegon Days, The Book of Guys, and Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny (Viking). He is the host of the daily program The Writer’s Almanac and the editor of several anthologies of poetry, most recently, Good Poems: American Places (Viking). In 2006, Keillor played himself in the movie adaptation of his show, a film directed by Robert Altman. In 2007, he opened an independent bookstore, Common Good Books, in St. Paul.
Sara Watkins was a mainstay of the Grammy Award-winning trio Nickel Creek. An accomplished fiddler and singer/songwriter, she has established her identity as a solo artist with her albums Sara Watkins and Sun Midnight Sun. (Sara will join the tour on the July 27th – August 6th dates.)
Sound-effects man Fred Newman is an actor, writer, musician, and sound designer for film and TV. He is author of the book (and CD/CD-ROM) MouthSounds. Fred admits that, growing up, he was unceremoniously removed from several classrooms, “once by my bottom lip.”

The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band is an all-purpose roots quintet covering blues, jug band, primitive jazz, good timey, R&B, swing, and hillbilly, with occasional ventures into classical, romantic, French caf, music hall, surfer, spa, and Scandihoovian. The band is: Richard Dworsky (leader, keyboards), Pat Donohue (guitar), Gary Raynor (bass), Peter Johnson (percussion), and Richard Kriehn (fiddle, mandolin).
