Trout Fishing In America (Children's)

Taking their name from the novel by Richard Brautigan, Trout Fishing in America formed in 1979 from the remnants of the Houston-based unit St. Elmo's Fire. An acoustic folk-rock duo comprised of vocalist/guitarist Ezra Idlet and vocalist/bassist Keith Grimwood, they earned their greatest success performing music for children, beginning with 1991's Big Trouble. In addition to their kid-friendly songwriting, the band also delighted children with their rather arresting physical appearance, which saw Idlet standing at a whopping 6'9" tall. Grimwood, meanwhile, remained roughly 14 inches shorter than his bandmate.

1992's Over the Limit signalled a brief change in direction, targeting adult audiences rather than youth, but 1994's Mine! won a Parents' Choice Award. After 1996's Reel Life, Trout Fishing in America returned the following year with the children's record My World. Another release for adults, Closer to the Truth followed in 1999. It was only a brief reprieve from family-oriented material, though, and the duo returned in 2001 with Infinity, followed by It's a Puzzle two years later. Trout Fishing in America's 12th release arrived in 2004, a holiday album titled Merry Fishes to All that earned the duo their second Grammy nomination. My Best Day arrived in 2006, featuring live renditions of old and new songs; it, too, earned the band a Grammy nomination, and Trout Fishing in America returned in 2008 with a homemade album entitled Big Round World. ~ Jason Ankeny

Grew up loving them. I still have the Mine! cassette tape. Only music that my parents and brother and I could all agree on. Got to see them in Indy and Plano when I was kid. Would love to see them as an adult here in California

I have been listening to these guys for years. Always a pleasure to listen to true artists, even when playing in Philadelphia in 90 degree heat back in 94' Have seen them many times and would go again if they ever come to central Florida. hint, hint!?

These guys are the best fun I have ever had. We danced our socks to threads. Laughed until our faces hurt and kept begging for more!

I agree, they have excellent concerts. Apart from being charming individuals and brilliant songwriters, they are excellent performers. I particularly enjoy their concerts without a backup band. They make emotionally and intellectual l y worthwhile music with meaning for those of all ages and tastes. I first began enjoying them as a young child, and I am still raptured today.

I have seen these guys in concert and i love them. They are two of the nicest guys you can meet. Go see them in concert, it's worth the price of admission.

The adult music is wonderful, and the children's music is something adults can listen to without wanting to barf. If you ever have a chance to see them live in concert, GO! They put on a great show!!!
