About Garrison Keillor A Prairie Home Companion Tickets

The opening theme of the show was a 1974 country #1 by Hank Snow called “Hello Love”. It was Snow’s seventh & final chart-topper, featuring the production of Chet Atkins, who went on to become closely associated with the show. Since 1987, A Prairie Home Companion has used Spencer Williams’ “Tishomingo Blues” as its theme. A Prairie Home Companion is best known as an outlet for folk & traditional music, keeping it top of the list in its innovative format. Host Garrison Keillor himself often joins gospel duo Robin & Linda Williams, along with Jearlyn Steele, to form the Hopeful Gospel Quartet. Leading country musicians like Mark Knopfler & Chet Atkins have graced the show. A Prairie Home Companion spreads its wings to encompass bluegrass, opera & classical music as well. Keillor also features local folk musicians when touring. But music is not the only entertainment. Interspersed with the colorful rural music scene are hilarious over-the-top comedy skits by Keillor & other cast members, often poking fun at Minnesota’s lifestyle & ethnicities.

Some of these have progressed to become legendary on the entertainment circuit. “Guy Noir, Private Eye” pokes fun at noir dramas, while “The lives of the Cowboys” has become a near-permanent fixture, starring Keillor as a sensitive cowboy (Lefty) opposite Tim Russell as the roughened rogue stereotype (Dusty). But arguably A Prairie Home Companion’s most famous segment is “News from Lake Wobegon”. It is a captivating & comic monologue by Keillor regarding news from his fictitious hometown, the county seat of the imaginary Mist County. Recurring characters like Father Emil of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility Roman Catholic Church & the Norwegian bachelor farmers add a more potent rural Minnesota feel to the proceedings. Keillor & the cast members lead their imagination into overdrive with the fictitious sponsors of the show, featuring comic performed commercials by a number of made-up brands.
