Bush does PHC

Stephen Mougin and Sam Bush on stageSam Bush will be a musical guest on this weekend’s edition of A Prairie Home Companion, aired on hundreds of public radio stations throughout the US. The show will be broadcast live on Saturday afternoon (5/2) at 6:00 p.m. (EDT) from The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Unlike many recent Bush guest spots on PHC, Sam will have his fine band with him this time out – Scott Vestal on banjo, Stephen Mougin on guitar, Byron House on bass and Chris Brown on drums. Country superpicker Brad Paisley will also be appearing on the show.

The radio broadcast is sold out, but there will be a special “off the air” show at The Ryman starting at 9:00 p.m., Nashville time. Not sure what that will entail, but Sam and Brad will both be involved.

Though the show airs live in many radio markets, others hold it for broadcast on Sunday afternoon. You can check the official station list to double check when it airs in your area – or tune in online where the show will stream live at Saturday at 6:00.
