What is the piano music that accompanies The Writer’s Almanac?
The music that begins and ends The Writer’s Almanac is a Scandinavian folk tune called “Gi Mig En Dag” (“Give Me a Day”). The pianist is Rich Dworsky, music director for A Prairie Home Companion. Unfortunately, there are currently no commercial recordings of the song available. Sheet music is allegedly available, but apparently quite difficult to find.
