Chris Thile’s beloved public radio show Live From Here, formerly known as A Prairie Home Companion, is going on the road this spring and summer, with an eye-popping slate of guests, both musical and otherwise. Thile’s guests during the run will include the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, Neko Case, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Shakey Graves, Calexico and quite a few more, as Relix reports.
Thile’s Live From Here tour begins this Saturday, April 7 with a performance featuring Shakey Graves at Minneapolis, Minn.’s State Theatre. From there, the show spends three weeks in New York City, performing alongside Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Stevens and Calexico on April 14, 21 and 28, respectively, before heading south to play Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium with Barnett and Dave Rawlings, Atlanta’s Fox Theatre with Father John Misty and Case, and Vienna, Va.’s Wolf Trap alongside Sheng Wang and Sarah Jarosz. Thile and co. spend June visiting Illinois, Washington and Colorado before wrapping their run in Lenox, Mass. on June 30.
Additional guests will be added in the coming weeks, as if all the above weren’t enough.
