The first new Prairie Home Christmas collection in ten years is a warm and wonderful celebration of storytelling, music, and the holiday spirit. It's Christmas in Lake Wobegon, Christmas at the old radio show, Christmas at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Christmas wherever friends and families gather to rejoice, reminisce, and share the holiday spirit.

About the Author:

As the host of A Prairie Home Companion for over forty years, Garrison Keillor has captivated millions of listeners with his News from Lake Wobegon monologues. He has been honored with Grammy, ACE, and George Foster Peabody awards, the National Humanities Medal, and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

From AudioFile:

This compilation is wonderful and occasionally strange. The material, all related to Christmas, is well executed, but the transitions from Lake Wobegon to a blues number, or from an extended radio sketch/fictional ad to "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" are occasionally odd. However, that is the album's sole weakness, as many beautiful voices visit to share the holiday spirit, and many versions of old favorites give them new life. This blend of humor, sentiment, and seasonal music is a joy to the ear. It's sure to make listeners laugh out loud, tumble into memories, and perhaps even sing along.
