August 2020

Dear Fisherfolk,

Trout Fishing in America last played a live show on March 7. In all our years of making music together, we have NEVER been off the road this long. Initially, we locked down at home in strict quarantine mode. Slowly we opened our worlds enough to include some family. Finally, the two of us started getting together to make music at the Trout House. You'd think after 40+ years together we could use a separation. But no, we just can't leave one another alone. Going over old songs and writing new songs (we can hardly wait for you to hear them!!) has been a joy. We have unlocked some of the mysteries of Live Stream video performances. (Thank you, Susan!) We've done a few of them and we'd like to thank all of you who virtually attended. Playing for cameras is a whole new experience, but we're getting better at it every time.

Trout Fishing in America was scheduled to play this August at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We can't go to Michigan, so we're bringing Michigan to Arkansas. On August 11, at 7 PM central time, we will be presenting a Live Stream Trout Concert in conjunction with The Ark. That right, folks. The Ark is heading to the ozARKs. (Sorry, I couldn't resist). The show will be on The Ark's Facebook page. No Facebook account is required to watch the show. Click on this link a few minutes before showtime and you will be in the right spot!

The Folk Project in New Jersey booked Trout Fishing in America to play their Troubadour Acoustic Concert Series this past April. Well that didn't happen so the show was rescheduled. Now that's not gonna happen. But you know what is gonna happen? On August 18 at 6 PM central time, we will be presenting a Live Stream Trout Concert from our studio in conjunction with the Folk Project. Click on this link a few minutes before showtime and you will be in the right spot! This show will stream on Facebook and you don't need an account to see it. Have questions about the shows? E-mail our Wrangler and she will help you out.

We are trying to stay safe and healthy and hope you're all doing the same. We miss you. These are extraordinary times and they call for extraordinary measures. All of us are having to find creative ways to get through it. Take time out from your "busy lives" and join us for these Trout Streams. It's not like there's anything else to do, right? Text your friends about it. There will be brand new songs as well as songs from our 40+ years of playing music together. Music is a joy. We plan to enjoy it and we hope you will, too.
Troutfully yours,
Keith and Ezra
