The Performers

Trout Fishing in America

Trout Fishing in America

Drawing inspiration from childhoods spent listening to Top 40 AM radio, songwriters Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet season their music with stylings from rock and roll, blues, folk, country, bluegrass, funk, Latin, and reggae…whatever sound would best bring out the flavor of the lyrics they wrote since their formation in 1979. At the 40-year mark, these two friends continue writing songs and performing. Ezra has added an electric banjo and an electric bouzouki to his stage instruments. Keith has added the fiddle. It may still be impossible to tell you what kind of music Trout plays, but after attending a show, you’ll know exactly what you’ve witnessed: two guys who still love what they do and are excited to share it with you.

Still on the Hill

Opening band: Still on the Hill

Still on the Hill is a national and international touring group from Arkansas that has been described as “Ambassadors of the Ozarks” for the work they do to preserve a rich culture that is quickly disappearing. Kelly and & Donna of Still on the Hill are award winning “story telling-song writers”. Different than most singer-songwriters, this dynamic duo embellishes their songs with a host of unique instruments from the hills they call home.
