Nashville’s all-star band The Time Jumpers will appear live on public radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.” Broadcasting live from The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN the show airs on Saturday, May 11 from 5pm – 7pm Central Time. The show can be heard internationally via public radio, live streaming and Sirius Satellite Radio.
The current edition of The Time Jumpers includes 11 members, each a master of his (and, in one case, her) instrument. Alphabetically—which is the only diplomatic way to present such a phalanx of evenly matched talent—they are Brad Albin (upright bass), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Paul Franklin (steel guitar), Vince Gill (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars), “Ranger Doug” Green (vocals, acoustic rhythm guitar), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Dawn Sears (vocals), Kenny Sears (vocals, fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle, vocals) Jeff Taylor (accordion, piano) and Billy Thomas (drums, vocals).
