From The Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul
We spent this week at the Fitzgerald. Country and bluegrass musician Jeannie Kendall, whose band The Kendalls had the hit "Love is Only a Sin Away," joined us, as well as blues legend Spider John Koerner and angel-voiced up-and-comer Becky Schlegel. And we spent time with Arnold, the soothing music of Brahms, and a hapless author on a book tour through Hell.

With songs and tunes from jazz pianist Butch Thompson, mandolin maestro Peter Ostroushko, Dakota Dave Hull and the first house band, The Powdermilk Biscuit Band (Adam Granger, Bob Douglas and Mary DuShane).
