We're thrilled that our tour has us heading west to Mitchell, South Dakota this weekend, for a show at the Corn Palace, which, yes, is a palace made of corn. (Yes. Seriously.) We invited some of our best friends to join us: fiddler Johnny Niemann, sultry singer Prudence Johnson, sound-effects guy Fred Newman. And we'll also welcome acoustic duo The Ditty Bops, as well as former South Dakota senator George McGovern. (Yes. Seriously.)

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).
