    Have a special celebration with the whole family as Trout Fishing in America counts down to 12…noon! Longtime Peanut Butter and Jams favorites, Bass player Keith Grimwood and guitarist Ezra Idlet, together, are Trout Fishing in America. They’ve been playing music together since the 1970s, when they met up in Texas in a folk rock band. In 1979, Trout Fishing was born, and now, 15 albums and four Grammy nominations later, Keith and Ezra still get up every day looking forward to playing music together. We’re going to have a great party for the last PBJ of 2013 and we hope you will join us for the fun!

    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 three 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.
