A Prairie Home Companion Comes to Bend

We were excited when we learned that Garrison Keillor was bringing his Prairie Home Companion Show to the Les Schwab Amphitheater this summer.  Although we must admit we don't listen to the show regularly, we do enjoy his humor and were happy to get the chance to see the show in person.

  We were also happy to learn that some friends of ours from New Mexico, who we worked with in Antarctica were coming up for the show.  Here we are with Carol & Richard (aka Stretch) at 10 Barrel the night before the show.

The show took place on August 25th and lasted nearly three hours.  Here are Garrison & Heather Masse from the Wailin' Jenny's, who was the musical guest. 

Garrison doing his thing, telling stories...and making everyone laugh!!!

At different times during the show he walked through the crowd as he was singing.
