What's a holiday without friends, we say,
and that's why we've invited some of the best back to St. Paul for the
Thanksgiving-weekend show: The Boys of the Lough will play traditional Celtic tunes and singer/pianist Kelley Hunt will tune in with the blues. Robin and Linda Williams will be with us as well, as will guitarist/mandolinist/fiddler John Niemann, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and more.

We met these two guys on November 27, waiting outside in the snow for their families. Or "family," as the case may be since their kids got married in July: Peter Cryan (left) and his wife Terry were in St. Paul from Bolton, Massachusetts to give thanks with Jim (right) and Dixie Olmstead, the parents of son Phillip Cryan's new wife Julia. The newlywed Cryans drove up from Ames, Iowa for the occasion.
