Garrison Keillor to perform in Moorhead
Garrison Keillor's Summer Love Tour of "A Prairie Home Companion" is coming to Moorhead Sept. 1 with a 7:30 p.m. show at Imagine Theatre at Trollwood, it was announced Wednesday.
"A Prairie Home Companion" has been a public radio mainstay since 1974, heard by more than 4 million listeners on some 600 public radio stations nationwide, as well as on XM Radio and in dozens of European cities, a news release said.
The Summer Love Tour kicks off a 25-city run that will take the popular radio host and his pals from coast to coast, Texas to Minnesota.
This concert tour on the theme of romantic love will feature duets and ballads, poetry and stories of passion and marriage. Keillor will make intermission walks through the audience for the singalong of "Unchained Melody" and "Can't Help Falling In Love With You."
While these are not APHC broadcast shows, they will include many fan-favorite elements, featuring Guy Noir, Dusty and Lefty, and the News from Lake Wobegon. Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins will be on hand, as will sound effects man Fred Newman and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band.
