Garrison Keillor to meet his “companions” at Garde this Saturday

October 5, 2017 GMT

It’s been a little over a year since Garrison Keillor left what he is best-known for — the all-American variety NPR show “A Prairie Home Companion.” In its wake, he promised to write a memoir, submit columns to the Washington Post and tour around the country in the year that would follow. Since then, we have seen some of that come to fruition, but we are still waiting on the memoir. Oh, and the tour? Well, that will be making its way right here to New London on Saturday.

So even though fans of the radio show haven’t been left completely in the dark since (“Home Companion” was taken over by successor Chris Thile), they surely won’t be disappointed for what’s in store. They will still get the blending of comedy and folk music that Keillor is known for, and he will be accompanied by the husband-wife singer-songwriters Robin and Linda Williams. Storytelling by Keillor himself won’t be skipped over either.

The biggest question left will be whether Keillor decides to include an ad for Powdermilk Biscuits.

“Garrison Keillor with Robin & Linda Williams,” 8 p.m. Saturday, Garde Arts Center, 325 State St., New London; 89; (860) 444-7373.
