"It's his voice, that soothing, "let me tell you a story" voice, which gains your trust, which gets you to believe in the mythic status of otherwise overlooked mundane things. He's the aggrandizer of trivia, spinning it into gold."

Why See Garrison Keillor?

Garrison Keillor

The great chronicler of the Midwest is embarking on a nationwide tour, giving you a chance to hear his warmly comforting tones in the flesh. This special series of shows features nothing more than Keillor spinning biographical verse about his Minnesota upbringing and lengthy radio career and pondering life's great imponderables, all in his famous red shoes of course.

Known for his work on The Prairie Home Companion, in its various guises, from the mid-70s until 2016, when Chris Thile stepped up to the mic, he created a show that's now firmly established as the nation's most beloved and important radio public program.

Harkening back to the variety shows of old, with a mixture of live musical performances, comedy skits and monologues, Keillor also wrote the screenplay to a 2006 Robert Altman movie starring Meryl Streep, which took a fictional look behind the scenes of the show's recording. Alongside founding the national institution, Keillor is a formidable short story writer and essayist, with his articles having appeared in The New York Times and The National Geographic.
