So I’ve had a tough time getting used to the new setup of prairie home companion. I don’t really enjoy the comedians so much (has never been my thing) and I miss the storytelling. That being said, I LOVE the guests Chris Thiele has on the show.
Last weekend he had Josh ritter. I’m a big fan of him so we got tickets. To my surprise, our other favorites Aoife Odonovan and Sarah Jarohz were there too. Also Jon batiste was ther to top it off.
They do a live video of every show. After seeing the show, you really realize the new format is all about the music. It is an amazing show but it is, for sure, best seen and not heard, at lest in my opinion.
If you can go see it, it’s worth it!
