To see these guys perform live is truly a wonder to behold.  They possess a certain raw magic that leaves audiences of all ages entertained to their childhood core.
~Mindy Thomas, Program Director/SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live

Trout Fishing in America is the longstanding, four-time GRAMMY nominated musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. A willingness to at once make fun of our most annoying daily habits, then to touch our hearts with tender and passionate images of family life, is what makes the connection between Trout Fishing in America and its audiences so compelling and poignant. “…the Lennon and McCartney of kids’ music.” – National Public Radio

Letters from Presenters

“The teachers at the Alma Intermediate School were amazed by the songwriting workshops. The educational value of the workshops far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend the workshops that can be paired with the performances. The teachers have requested that we also do a school concert next year for all the students in the intermediate school as well as a future songwriting workshop for all fifth graders! Thank you for a wonderful experience!” -Teresa Schlabach, Alma PAC

“Keith and Ezra’s live shows are full of energy and audience participation. I have found them to be remarkably sensitive to their with the flexibility to adapt their show for the age groups attending their performance…I can’t recommend Trout Fishing in America enough to anyone who is looking for a family music concert, or an arts program that will involve kids in the creative process.” – Tim Wadham, St. Louis County Library
