September 18, 2010 rebroadcast with Connie Evingson, Sara Jarosz, Butch Thompson, The Old Crow Medicine Show, and the Derailers
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we're getting ready for next week's Season Opener, Street Dance & Meatloaf Supper with a remix of opening shows from the past few years. Connie Evingson sings "Autumn in St. Paul," Sara Jarosz sings "Song Up in Her Head," and Butch Tompson plays "The Working Man Blues." The Old Crow Medicine Show lives up to their raucous reputation, and we stop by the reference desk at the Herndon County Library to check in on Ruth Harrison. The hangdogs of honky-tonk, Austin's Derailers, sing "Who's Going to Mow Your Grass," and in Lake Wobegon, Dorothy at the Chatterbox Cafe is raising eyebrows with a new hairdo.
