Coming to you from the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, Louisiana, it's our repeat broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Tune in and hear yourselves having a great time at the performance. With special guests, musical ambassadors of Louisiana's rich Acadian past, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, and the original guitar hero, James Burton. Also with us, singer Andra Suchy, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and sound effects man Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame guitarist James Burton joins Garrison Keillor on "A Prairie Home Companion" at Municipal Auditorium. James has played on countless number-one recordings and created some of the most influential guitar riffs in popular music. Elvis Costello says that James Burton is one of few the players who musicians almost always call ‘legendary.’ Pete Townsend says that James is probably the most important guitar player in American music.
