Chris Thile at Powell Symphony Hall in St. Louis, MO

Live From Here: Powell Symphony Hall in St. Louis

My wife and I had the unique opportunity to attend the latest taping in St. Louis, Missouri of Live From Here, Minnesota Public Radio’s program hosted by Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers front man and mandolinist Chris Thile. It is the show that ably replaced A Prairie Home Companion.

The highlight for me was the mash-up of the local hockey team’s de facto them song Laura Branigan’s hit “Gloria” with W.C. Handy’s “St. Louis Blues.”
