“A Prairie Home Companion” alumni Pat Donohue, Dan Newton and Gary Raynor will perform at 7 p.m. Nov. 2 on stage at Crossings at Carnegie. All three play with Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, in addition to being accomplished musicians independently.
This adventuresome trio plays traditional Delta blues, rags, jug-band music, and 20th century popular songs, Crossings spokesmen said.
“Years of experience and rich musical backgrounds allow the trio —composed of guitar, accordion, and string bass — to infuse their selections with jazz, rock, soul, eclectic, and ethnic influences.”
Donohue is National Fingerpicking Guitar Champion and an innovative songwriter. Newton has recorded with Prudence Johnson, Peter Ostroushko and Ann Reed, among others. Raynor has performed with the Count Basie band and the Minnesota Pops Orchestra.
“Good-natured chestnuts, obscurities, and originals (both sincere and tongue-in-cheek), drenched in great musical skill and showmanship, will produce an unforgettably entertaining evening,” according to the sponsors.
Tickets are $17 in advance and $19 at the door.
