Coming to you this week from The Town Hall on West 43rd Street in New York City, it's a live broadcast performance of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. With special guests, globetrotting soprano Ellie Dehn, crystalline vocalist Aoife O'Donovan, and public radio troublemaker Larry Josephson. Plus, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, Erica Rhodes, and Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
Ellie DehnSoprano Ellie Dehn has appeared in many of the world's leading opera houses, from the Metropolitan Opera to Teatro alla Scala and Bayerische Staatsoper. But her love of music started during her childhood in Anoka, Minnesota. She was raised in a musical home - the granddaughter of a Minnesota Orchestra flutist and the daughter of a piano teacher - and she went on to study at Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia.
Aoife O'DonovanGrowing up in a musical family, Aoife O'Donovan took an interest in the American folk tradition. And after graduating from the New England Conservatory of Music, she formed the progressive bluegrass band Crooked Still and the trio Sometymes Why. She recently collaborated with Sara Watkins and Sarah Jarosz to create the "I'm With Her" tour, which took the trio to the U.K., Europe, and across the U.S. Aoife's latest recording, In the Magic Hour, was released earlier this year on Yep Roc Records.
