Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver will be featured on the February 11 edition of the popular radio program, A Prairie Home Companion. This show will be carried live on the many NPR affiliate stations all over the US, broadcast from the University of Minnesota in Morris, MN.
Terry Baucom, banjo player with Quicksilver, shared with us how much he enjoys working the Prairie Home Companion show.
“I really enjoy doing the Prairie Home Companion show with Garrison Keillor. He and his staff are always very professional…and his house band is phenomenal. It’s so much fun to stand off-stage and just watch them. The variety of musical styles they do is just unreal. And Garrison is so highly intelligent, it’s like he came from another planet! I had always thought, from just listening to his show, that he was reading off a script…but he ad libs everything! He has told us what a big fan of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver he is…and we are certainly fans of his.”
Broadcast times vary from one affiliate to another, with many carrying the live feed on Saturday afternoons, and others running it instead early on Sunday afternoon.
Shows are archived on the PHC web site, and can be accessed online. The audio is usually available on the web by the Monday morning following a weekend broadcast.
