Trout Fishing In America
SATURDAY, MAY 26
Music for People Who Take Their Fun Seriously!
Trout Fishing in America is an eclectic folk/rock band best known for family music and kids’ songs. Songs like “My Hair Had a Party Last Night,” “18 Wheels on a Big Rig,” and "The Window", have earned them a place in the hearts of kids and parents everywhere.
Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing and yet seemingly unlikely musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. As individuals, they are about as different as one can imagine. Together, they blend seamlessly in a way that has captured the imagination (and hearts) of audiences of all ages for over three decades. Ezra on guitar and banjo stands 6’8″ tall while Keith on bass stretches to 5’5 1/2″ on a humid day. Ezra is more playful and extroverted while Keith is more serious and reserved. Each of them bring out the best in the other and the joy that comes from this musical interaction is contagious and impossible to deny.
Trout Fishing in America was in the first wave of artist owned labels (Trout Records) to successfully record and market their own music. Their recordings have garnered multiple national awards as well as four Grammy nominations. Keith and Ezra also write songs for "grownups" and recently released "Lookin' at Lucky," a CD loaded with their renowned humor and great melodies, peppered with stellar performances by guest artists.
