Garrison Keillor’s Summer of Love in Brevard

Beloved radio show A Prairie Home Companion brings its A Summer Love Tour to the Brevard Music Center on Saturday, Aug. 14.

Press for the show says, “This August, a coast-to-coast concert tour takes on the everlasting theme of romantic love. Join host Garrison Keillor, Sara Watkins (formerly of Nickel Creek), the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, and sound-effects man Fred Newman for tender duets and ballads, poetry (Poe, Shakespeare, Anonymous), stories of passion and marriage, and Mr. Keillor’s intermission walk through the audience for the sing-along of ‘Unchained Melody’ and ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.’ All this and favorite elements of A Prairie Home Companion — Guy Noir, Dusty and Lefty, the News from Lake Wobegon — during an entertaining date night for all ages.”

Show time is 7:30 p.m. The concert is sold out, but those interested can contact the Brevard Music Center box office about orchestra pit seating. 862-2105.
