Trout Fishing in America

Celebrity Q&A
on October 8, 2006

Q I saw the craziest musical act recently—they're called Trout Fishing in America. My whole family loved them. But what do they have to do with fishing?
—Anne H., Haines City, Fla.
The only fishing done by the eclectic folk-rock act of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet is "hooking" audiences for more than 20 years with their infectiously witty, wholesomely wacky songs. Named after a quirky 1968 novel by Richard Brautigan, the group has been nominated for two Grammy Awards and received high praise from several national parenting organizations. Often they record tunes they've co-written in workshops with kids, such as "Alien in My Nose" and "My Pants Fell Down" from their new CD, My Best Day.
