FOUR TIME GRAMMY-NOMINATED DUO IS COMING TO THE HISTORIC MILTON THEATRE!

Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet formed Trout Fishing in America in 1979 as a means of survival. As a part of the Texas-based five-piece band St. Elmo’s Fire, they traveled to California to be discovered and signed by a major record label. When no such opportunity arose, and the promising tour dissolved, Keith and Ezra peeled off from their bandmates to fend for themselves. Busking on the streets of Santa Cruz with an acoustic guitar, and an upright bass, the pair quickly learned that engaging listeners instantly was the only path towards dollars and coins in the open guitar case. When entry in a music contest required them to have a name for their new band, they chose Trout Fishing in America as an homage to Keith’s love of writer Richard Brautigan and Ezra’s love of fishing.

Drawing inspiration from childhoods spent listening to top-40 AM radio, the two songwriters seasoned 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. From the beginning, they were a song writing team with Keith primarily being the lyrical generator while Ezra developed the music. Their collaborative natures allowed them to edit each other’s contributions without egos clashing. They were nominated for Grammy awards in 2001, 2004, 2006, and 2008.
