Garrison Keillor captivates with his signature blend of humor, charisma and wisdom as he shares his journey to becoming one of America’s greatest storytellers. Garrison regaled audiences for more than 40 years as the host of A Prairie Home Companion.  Joining Garrison on stage will be pianist Rob Fisher and vocalist Heather Masse. Fisher was the founding music director and conductor of the New York City Center Encores! Series from 1994 – 2005.  He is the leader of the Coffee Club Orchestra, which was the house band for Garrison’s radio broadcasts from 1989-1993. Heather Masse is a member of the Canadian folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys and appeared regularly on A Prairie Home Companion.

Garrison Keillor is a best-selling author –  he has published more than two dozen books of fiction and poetry and his unique works have earned him honors including Grammy, ACE and Peabody awards, as well as the National Humanities Medal and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Crowds are instantly drawn in by his soothing, hypnotic voice, whimsical vignettes, and homespun brand of humor. Sharing his passion for everything from creativity and literacy to the great journey of life, Garrison entertains with a sage yet wry perspective, inspiring with kernels of wisdom audiences carry long after he has left the stage.
