It was great to be back in New York last weekend, and we're looking forward to a second show there this Saturday (with clearer weather, we hope): We've invited big-band leader Vince Giordano and his Nighthawks, pianist André Watts, blues and folk singer Odetta, and violinist Andy Stein. The Royal Academy of Actors will be there, too, with the adventures of Guy Noir and so much more.

Lovingly selected from the earliest archives of A Prairie Home Companion, this heirloom collection represents the music from earliest years of the now legendary show: 1974–1976. 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).
