PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
“The best idea I’ve had since Powdermilk Biscuits.”

Garrison Keillor on selecting Chris Thile as new host of A Prairie Home Companion
Chris Thile takes over as the new host of American Public Media’s A Prairie Home Companion. Each week Chris will be joined by an incredible array of special musical guests–some known by all, and some who soon will be–along with a bit of comedy and spoken word. Plus Chris will compose and perform a unique new song each week.
About Chris Thile
Chris Thile made his first appearance on A Prairie Home Companion in 1996. He was 15 and had already been playing mandolin for a decade. He had also started Nickel Creek with Sara and Sean Watkins, and released his first solo album, 1994’s Leading Off. This Grammy winner and MacArthur “genius” grant recipient now collaborates with many musicians in myriad styles and leads acoustic quintet Punch Brothers. Thile’s solo recordings include Bach: Sonatas and Partitas, Vol. 1 (Nonesuch).
“Garrison created a template that I think is immortal. It doesn’t feel like any kind of constraint. It’s like a license. I feel like I have my license to go and make some good radio. … The prospect of getting to make things for people on a weekly basis … is beyond compare. It’s what I love to do.”
