The public radio variety show Live From Here will be at Tanglewood this Saturday, June 30 and the lineup is pretty great. Host Chris Thile will be joined by Lake Street Dive, The Punch Brothers, and Aoife O'Donovan. Tickets are still available -- they're $21 and up.

Live From Here is the reborn and un-Keillor-ed Prairie Home Companion. Thile took over hosting the show back in the fall of 2016. And last winter it was renamed after the allegations against Garrison Keillor that surfaced last year.

Thile is, of course, a famous progressive bluegrass musician (and MacArthur fellow) who rose to prominence with Nickel Creek and the Punch Brothers. And it looks like the new crew has taken the show in some younger, more modern directions. Recent shows have featured Ben Folds, Wye Oak, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Father John Misty, Neko Case, and Sufjan Stevens.

We wouldn't be surprised if the show this Saturday at Tanglewood sells out. You know, Lake Street Dive sells out shows pretty much every time it rolls up around here.

(And if you're new to the area... Tanglewood is the music venue over the hill in Lenox, Massachusetts, about a 50-minute drive from Albany. It's the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.)

Comments

Not missing Garrison Keillor.

We saw him with PHC at Tanglewood and were creeped out by the way he behaved toward several young women in the show.

Last I checked there were TONS of seats available for this show which seems very weird. Their ticketing site looks like it's down at the moment.
