What is a Rhubarb Show?
May 6, 2008 |
Just a general question about the Rhubarb Tour. How does the show differ from the "Prairie Home Companion" show? I want to take my kids and they love Guy Noir and Dusty and the rest. Just wondering if the Tour is pretty much the same as Home Companion.
The tour show that will go around in August and early September is a concert version of the radio show. There is some Guy Noir, but no Dusty & Lefty. There is Fred Newman and his sound effects, and the Guy's All Star Shoe Band and singer Suzy Bogguss and me—some duets, the news from Lake Wobegon, and of course commercials for rhubarb.
