Trout Fishing in America at Longwood Gardens



Trout Fishing in America
Friday, June 15th
7:00 pm



The whole family will enjoy this four-time Grammy-nominated children’s folk/rock duo.

Trout Fishing in America will perform during one of our Light Nights. Sing along at this outdoor concert, make an illuminating craft, and enjoy other family-friendly activities.

Trout Fishing in America is the longstanding musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. The name, taken from a Richard Brautigan novel, seems almost as incongruent and intriguing as a picture of this musical duo - Ezra Idlet (guitar) stands six feet nine inches and Keith Grimwood (bass), five feet five and one half inches. What is more intriguing is the musical career these two have carved out in three decades of writing, recording, and performing together.

Sharing knowledge and encouraging art has become another musical mission of TFIA. In the past few years they have developed a variety of song writing workshops for teachers and students, which illustrate how art and music come from the fabric of everyday life. Their willingness to make fun of our most annoying and sometimes disgusting habits in one song then touch our hearts with tender and passionate images of family life in the next is what makes the connection between Trout Fishing in America and their audiences so real.




This performance is weather permitting.
