It's a regular Prairie Home show made for the big screen, featuring the boot-stompin', heart-breakin' songs of Old Crow Medicine Show, the sweet sounds of Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins, some smoldering honky-tonk from Joe Ely, soulful duets with singer-songwriter Andra Suchy, and the heavenly sounds of the Women's Vocal Ensemble of The St. Olaf Choir. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, with both Tom Keith, AND Fred Newman. Plus The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and The News from Lake Wobegon.
