Garrison Keillor will play a string of intimate shows in Minnesota and Wisconsin in August and mid-October. “An Evening with Garrison Keillor” will feature Garrison at the microphone, singing and telling his signature style of humorous and labyrinthine stories, accompanied by former A Prairie Home Companion music director Richard Dworsky at the piano.
The show’s stop in Winona will be on October 18 at 7:00pm at St. Cecelia Theater. The recently renovated space is on the Cotter School Campus (formerly, St. Teresa’s). The theater boasts excellent sight-lines and acoustics and seats 408 patrons.
Keillor has kept busy since retiring from his legendary ensemble radio show, A Prairie Home Companion, in 2016. His beloved poetry program The Writer’s Almanac is now available as an email newsletter and as a podcast via most major podcast apps and smart speakers.
Meanwhile, Keillor has been working on a book of limericks, a memoir, a weekly column, a screenplay, and various other writing projects, including a guest essay in the August 2019 issue of Harper’s Magazine.
Audiences should expect a rambling and rollicking show of poetry recitation, fan-favorite songs, stunning piano improvisation, and Keillor’s trademark wry humor.
