The Rhubarb Tour is the soul of A Prairie Home Companion stories from Lake Wobegon, passionate duets with Suzy Bogguss, the philosophy of Guy Noir, wild radio dramas starring sound-effects genius Fred Newman, and the incredible Guy's All Star Shoe Band.
This is the show I'd do if I could only do one more show. It's the essence of everything from the past thirty-four years of Prairie Home that was funny and heart-breaking and made for great radio. The great Suzy Bogguss joins us for the singing, and Guy Noir reminisces about his salad days in the P.I. business, and I'll tell about the little town that time forgot and State Fairs and the first girl I loved and we'll all sing "America the Beautiful" and go home.

Dear Mr. Keillor, I saw your show for the first time this August 16th. Nearly bursting with great anticipation, I made the 135 mile drive to the gorgeous Santa Barbara seaside for only the second time in my life. As a party of one, I was able to attain a fantastic seat in the second row. There, in such close proximity to your figure, I hardly felt alone. What an amazing experience!
