Duets 2

A Prairie Home Companion Duets 2

“The world is full of lonesome singers, bless their hearts, who need to tell us about their empty days and weepy nights, but the answer to their dilemma is so simple: find someone to sing with and feel better. Our radio show has been working on behalf of duetology for years and this 2nd volume of duets from the show is proof. Whether the voice is united with that of a sibling, pal, life partner, or someone you only met last Tuesday, the result can be delightful and moving. And because it’s the performers’ relatives who buy their CDs, sales are doubled. Watch for Volume Three in the very near future.”
— Garrison Keillor
