Meet Garrison Keillor’s hand-picked Prairie Home successor, Chris Thile

Oct 13, 2016


A new season, a new host for A Prairie Home Companion.

After 42 years, Garrison Keillor has retired. He chose his first successor, who will bring us his very first show this Saturday night, live from The Fitzgerald Theatre in St. Paul, Minnesota.

He’s a mandolin virtuoso, he’s won many Grammys, and he leads the Punch Brothers.

Today, we welcomed brand-new host of A Prairie Home Companion, Chris Thile.
