A Prairie Home Companion's Radio Romance Tour 2013 hits the road coast-to-coast this summer, starring host and writer Garrison Keillor, singer and fiddler Sara Watkins, comedian Fred Newman, Rich Dworsky and The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band with guitarist Pat Donohue and violinist/mandolinist Richard Kriehn, two hours of duet singing, absurd improv with sound effects, Guy Noir Private Eye, poetry, outright foolishness, and the News from Lake Wobegon. Sara Watkins was a mainstay of the Grammy-Award-winning bluegrass trio Nickel Creek, an accomplished fiddler and singer/songwriter who, with her albums Sara Watkins and Sun Midnight Sun, has established her identity as a solo artist. The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band is an all-purpose roots quintet covering blues, jugband, primitive jazz, good timey, R&B, swing, and hillbilly, with occasional ventures into classical, romantic, French cafe, music hall, surfer, spa, and Scandihoovian. Fred Newman is a storyteller and sound-effects artist and author of the best-selling MouthSounds.
