Nov. 7th – Elvin & his Big Fun Trio return to Prairie Home Companion
This week: we’re heading to Bemidji, Minnesota for a live broadcast from the Sanford Center, up near the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Elvin Bishop will be along with his Big Fun Trio (featuring Bob Welsh and Willy Jordan) to bring a little southern blues to the northwoods. Plus: scripts and Minnesota scenes from our Royal Academy of Radio Actors — Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman — and radio-ready rock and roll from pianist and music director Rich Dworsky and the band (Bernie Dresel on drums, bassist Larry Kohut, Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle, and guitarist Chris Siebold). All that and an update on all the latest News from Lake Wobegon — tune in this Saturday evening!
