After 42 years, Garrison Keillor retired as host of A Prairie Home Companion. His successor, Nickel Creek’s Chris Thile, made his debut on Saturday night hosting an episode broadcast live from Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota. Jack White appeared as one of the musical guests, performing a four-song acoustic set that included renditions of The White Stripes’ “City Lights” and The Raconteurs’ “Carolina Drama” featuring Thile on mandolin. The set also included a duet of The White Stripes’ “I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet)” alongside Third Man artist Margo Price, as well as a version of the country classic “(Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn,” penned by Tom T. Hall in 1969 for Bobby Bare.
