This week: we’re live from the Koussevitzky Music Shed at Tanglewood, all the way up in the Berkshires in Lenox, Massachusetts. The DiGiallonardo Sisters join us with their trio of harmonies honed to perfection in Bensonhurst, Heather Masse will sing songs for summer evenings and join the host on a duet or two, and our friend Rob Fisher stops by to offer his encyclopedic knowledge of the American song. Plus: our Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman; pianist and music director Rich Dworsky leads Jonathan Dresel on drums, bassist Larry Kohut, Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle, and guitarist Chris Siebold; and we’ll get an update on the latest News from Lake Wobegon, where the majesty of a Minnesota summer is in full effect. Tune in on your local public radio station or, if you want to see what’s happening on stage, watch live (5pm Central Time) at prairiehome.org — you’ll even have the chance to join us in singing a few songs after the show!

Classical MPR's broadcast of Metropolitan Opera live will briefly pre-empt the start of A Prairie Home Companion on January 5, March 2 and May 11. For the complete broadcast, join MPR News on Sunday at 11 a.m.
