$20/person suggested minimum donation
Gail and I have been fans of Trout Fishing in America forever, ok, maybe not forever, but definitely since we first saw them at Symphony Square in Austin in the 1980's. Back then, they were playing songs while they balanced pitchers of water on their heads and other such antics. Thirty years later they no longer balance pitchers of water on their heads, but they put on just as energetic a show as they did in the 1980's. They are the ultimate performers/songwriters/musicians. We are so happy to have them return to Sycamore Creek for another great night of music.
This quote from the San Jose Mercury News pretty much sums it up: "Their songs are folky and intelligent, part country, part roots, a mix of cheeky lyrics and soulful harmonies. Their live shows blend campy humor and instrumental prowess...The power of their music is that they write kids' songs that grown-ups can share without feeling embarrassed or lowbrow. And they write grown-up songs that don't bore kids."
I doubt it is necessary, but if you are not familiar with this "dynamic duo," you can visit their website to learn more about them. If you attend this concert, be prepared to experience the full gamut of emotions, from laughing at songs like "Don't Touch My Stuff," to shedding a tear listening to "Lullaby."
