Trout Fishing In America

This concert, titled "My Best Day," features Ezra Idlet on guitar and Keith Grimwood on bass and was taped at the Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall on the University of Central Arkansas campus. The duo performs songs from their two Grammy-nominated albums, as well as some new songs, before an enthusiastic audience that becomes a part of the show. Accompanying TFIA is "multi-instrumentalist" Fred Bogert on guitar, piano, accordion and more. Idlet and Grimwood will be live in the AETN studios for this special evening of programming, and a CD and DVD of the concert will be available. Included in the performance is "I've got a Friend (and he won't be quiet)," which was written with participants from the Forth Smith Library songwriting workshop during the summer of 2005 and has been featured on Sirius Satellite Radio KidStuff. For nearly 20 years, Trout Fishing in America has been entertaining audiences with eclectic, intelligent and fun folk-rock. Drawing from many different musical traditions, including folk, blues, rock and reggae, their music focuses on common, everyday occurrences and raises them to an extraordinary level.
