Sam will be joining Garrison Keillor for live broadcast
Apr 21, 2012
Sam will be joining Garrison Keillor on stage for a live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Saturday.
The Ryman was initially constructed in the late 1800’s, and for more than thirty years, it played host to the Grand Ole Opry. It’s even been called the birthplace of Bluegrass. On December 8, 1945, a very young Earl Scruggs joined Bill Monroe on that hallowed stage for the first time, and music has never sounded quite so sweet.
Saturday, when Sam joins Garrison Keillor on stage, he’ll again be etching his footprints where great names have played through the years, and thanks to programs like the Prairie Home Companion, millions will hear the continually evolving sounds of traditional music. Whether you catch Sam live on Saturday or you just tune into your local NPR station, you’re certain to get a show unlike any other in a venue that has been called the “Sweetest sounding room of all time.”
