”A master of precise comic pauses with a heart-tugging emotional range.” —Times-Picayune
The venerated former host of A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor is a distinguished writer of everything from detective novels and poems to op-eds and essays. In his live solo performance, Keillor sustains his hallmark role as perspicacious host with acidic wit-infused social and political commentary and songs ranging from parodies to hymns. Keillor has been honored with Grammy, ACE, and George Foster Peabody awards, the National Humanities Medal, and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
