February 7, 2015 — With Special Guest Host Chris Thile

It’s been four years since our stalwart host took any sort of break from his radio duties, and this week he’ll finally get the chance to listen to his own show live, as Chris Thile steps to the centerstage mic at the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He’ll have a little help from his string-quintet comrades Punch Brothers, poet Billy Collins, bluegrass singer Sarah Jarosz, Minneapolis storyteller Tristan Jimerson, and, keeping things steady, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors (Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman), and our musical director and pianist Rich Dworsky. Tune in on your local public radio station or watch live at prairiehome.org!
