National Public Radio commentator KevinKling will perform a night of side-splittingly funny yet thought-provoking storytelling with accordionista Simone Perrin. Kling, a lifelong Minnesotan who never let a birth defect or severe motorcycle accident slow him down, takes listeners on a journey through his life that is no less poignant for his humorous style. Kling is best-known for his commentaries on NPR’s All Things Considered. He is also the creator of several books and CDs of recorded storytelling. The CD “State Fair” is his latest offering, with new, original stories written and told by Kling. It carries titles like “Easy Bob's Lament.” Joining Kling will be Minneapolis-based theater actress, composer, vocalist and accordionista Perrin, who has been featured on A Prairie Home Companion and is a regular performer, in a variety of capacities, at Crossings. Kling and Perrin collaborate to create a performance that covers a range of humor, tenderness and music.
