Long-time “Prairie Home Companion” musician Butch Thompson will entertain visitors at the official opening of the new independent Lake Elmo Library Saturday. The Ceremony starts at 10 a.m. and concludes with a front-door ribbon cutting. Refreshments and an open house follow the ceremony. All are welcome. Thompson said the rhythm of New Orleans music took hold of him at an early age and hasn’t let go. He said his roots are deep and he has played his personal style of traditional jazz and ragtime from Kansas City to Chicago
