I got tickets for Aaron to see "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Kiellor at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul as a Christmas present. We saw the Feb. 9th show this weekend and it was AWESOME!!! We were about 10 rows from the front in a very small, intimate theater. Two hours of live performance went by in a flash. We loved every minute of it, AND we discovered a new singer in the process. Ellis was a special guest, and her music was so pure and heartfelt...I was breathless. We'll definitely be looking for a show of hers near us sometime soon.
I love "discovering" new music with Aaron. We immediately fell in love with Carbon Leaf when they opened for Blues Traveler in Madison many years ago...and I think Ellis will always bring back memories of this wonderful weekend for us as well.
Check out some of our favorite things when you have a chance:
