Austin’s charming old-timey country trio the Carper Family will be up in Dallas on Nov. 16 to appear live on the nationally-syndicated “Prairie Home Companion” radio show, fiddler Beth Crissman announced today. Now, that’s a perfect booking for the group, whose producer and sometime steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar is a favorite on the Garrison Keillor-hosted show.

The trio’s latest album is “Old-Fashioned Gal.” They were featured in the Statesman earlier this year.
