Garrison Keillor with the New York Philharmonic, October 16, 2012
The New York Times, Oct. 18, 2012
Pretty much explains itself, except to say that I was surprised, in my first time seeing Mr. Keillor perform live, by just how little eye contact he makes with the audience, instead directing most of his songs and stories to his colleagues onstage (and even singing with his back turned to the seats). No judgement implied, just a curious observation.
Oh, and that reference to "criticism on Facebook" regarding Mr. Keillor's singing? Or "whinging," as I wrote in the original draft? That was a reference to this.
