Leon Redbone

Tom Rush

This week on A Prairie Home Companion: a summer compilation of Town Hall broadcasts from New York City, with the legendary Leon Redbone, troubadour Tom Rush, brother-guitarists Sergio and Odair Assad, young pianist Shai Wosner and a little taste of Broadway from the Stephen Sondheim Theater with Colin Donnell and Sutton Foster. Plus, Justin Townes Earle sings "One More Night in Brooklyn," and Guy Noir—like a lot of New Yorkers—is dealing with bed bugs. In Lake Wobegon, the tundra swans returned and LeRoy gets in trouble for avoiding his manure pile.
