Wailin' Jennys visit Garrison Keillor this weekend
May 20, 2005
Canadian neo-bluegrass trio the Wailin' Jennys make an appearance on A Prairie Home Companion Saturday (5/21). The program is broadcast from 6-8 EST on public radio stations across the US and around the world on various services. Keillor is fond of old-time music, and it meshes well with a radio show that would be quite at home in a pre-War household - featuring fictional commercials, skits with cowboys and paperback detectives, and Keillors famous monologues about the denizens of Lake Wobegon, MN. The Wailin' Jennys recently won a Canadian JUNO Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year - Group for 40 Days.
