Coming to you this week from The Town Hall on West 43rd Street in New York City, it's a live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. With special guests, New Orleans soul prince Aaron Neville and singing siblings The DiGiallonardo Sisters. Plus, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
The DiGiallonardo SistersThe DiGiallonardo Sisters - Daniela, Nadia, and Christine - started singing together when they were kids Brooklyn. They still call Brooklyn home, and they still love stacking up those three-part harmonies. Now, Daniela teaches social studies at Brooklyn's Mark Twain Intermediate School for the Gifted & Talented; Nadia is a pianist, composer, arranger, and singer; and Christine is a singer and actor. The trio's debut album, Shout Sister Shout, was recorded with Rob Fisher live at the Virginia Arts Festival.
Aaron NevilleSafe to say, Aaron Neville has a voice like no other. As one reviewer so aptly put it, "When Neville opens his mouth, out floats a heavenly choir." Growing up in the Crescent City, he and his siblings harmonized on the tunes of the day. They would later form The Neville Brothers, often called "the first family of New Orleans music." Since his first hit single, "Tell It Like It Is," Aaron Neville has ventured into R&B, gospel, soul, country, and more. His latest album is My True Story (Blue Note), a collection of 12 doo-wop tunes. Joining him for this performance are Curtis King and Fonzi Thornton.
