A Prairie Home Companion on 2014 Tanglewood schedule
Nov. 23, 2013 article by Dave Read
A Prairie Home Companion, with Garrison Keillor makes its 15th consecutive visit to the Berkshires for a live broadcast from the Koussevitsky Music Shed at Tanglewood on June 28, 2014. Mr. Keillor has become a beloved and familiar figure here, especially because of his customary pre-show serenade among picnicers on the Lawn and encore singalongs with the program’s musical guests that can last up to 2 hours.
The first time A Prairie Home Companion was broadcast at Tanglewood will always be remembered for the performance of the Berkshire Highlanders, the local band of bagpipers and drummers that also used to be audience favorites during Tanglewood on Parade. How could a show with Arlo Guthrie and Steve Martin with the Steep Canyon Rangers as musical guests ever be far from the top of your favorites list?
