This week on A Prairie Home Companion we're live from the Town Hall in New York City. With special guests, jazzman Bob Dorough, bluegrass specialist Jen Larson, and tenor Vern Sutton. Sitting in with the Shoe Band, we've got tubist Dave Bargeron and fiddler John Niemann. And in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, we'll expect everyone to sing along with some great traditional Irish songs (bring a hanky) and you'll hear the hilarious story of Danny, the tenor whose voice went flatter than week-old green beer. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting, the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the News from Lake Wobegon. It's all new this week on A Prairie Home Companion, live from West 43rd Street.

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).
