Trout Fishing in America
Music for people who take their fun seriously!
Trout Fishing in America returns to the Miller Center for an afternoon of fun and imaginative music.
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 four 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.
Maxwell Brown, the 2019 Grand Champion of the Lyons Fiddle Fest, will be the opening act for this show. He will be joined by his teacher, Andrew Vogts, himself a former Grand Champion.
