Blue grass music and songs from the legendary Carter Family were part of Garrison Keillor's show at the City Winery in NYC last night. Noted American storyteller, author, humorist and creator of Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion, Keillor was at his best spinning his stories of life as he saw it and lived it. At 75, he was reflective on growing old...ranting that retirement was a curse that aged you even more. He was in fine voice joining Robin and Linda Williams in a series of songs that transported you back to his radio days and his classic Mid-West roots. He is a modern day Mark Twain armed with a sharp wit and a radio microphone reflecting a part of American culture that we in the east know very little about. His one wish as a writer is to be remembered for one thing he said or wrote like. "....where all the women are strong, the men are good-looking and all the children above average." His classic sign off of Lake Wobegon...or " Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough". Winery venue is great...excellent food and drink..friendly staff.
