Bringing audiences together on Saturday evenings with music and comedy has been a tradition in public radio since Garrison Keillor launched A Prairie Home Companion in 1974. Musician and songwriter Chris Thile continues that tradition with Live From Here, featuring a unique blend of musical performances, comedy and audience interaction.
Mandolinist Chris Thile is among the most highly acclaimed musicians of his generation. The Grammy winner started the band Nickel Creek and currently leads the acoustic quintet Punch Brothers. Each week on Live From Here, Thile welcomes a wide range of well-known and up-and-coming talent to share the stage and create a beautiful listening experience.
Live from Here is produced and distributed nationwide by American Public Media, and is heard by 2.6 million listeners each week on nearly 600 public radio stations. The radio variety show airs Saturdays at 6:00 p.m. on Michigan Radio and is repeated at 9:00 p.m. on Sundays.
