Double serving of Trout 

Fabled duo appears in Little Rock, Hot Springs.

KEITH AND EZRA: Fishing for Christmas.
  • KEITH AND EZRA: Fishing for Christmas.

Besides a bar-room contribution to Nightflying’s 25th anniversary party on Thursday (see related story on this page), the Grammy Award-nominated duo Trout Fishing in America will have the stage to itself in a pair of family Christmas shows in Central Arkansas this weekend.

Trout Fishing, the Northwest Arkansas-based musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet, who have entertained adults and kids for more than two decades, will play Friday, Dec. 16, at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 4501 Rahling Road, in a benefit for the Arkansas River Valley Montessori School. Showtime is 7 p.m. and tickets at the door are $15 (children ages 8 and younger will be admitted at no charge).

The group then entertains Saturday, Dec. 17, at Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs. The show at the Klipsch Amphitheater begins at 3:30 p.m.

Credit Michael Tisserand of the New Orleans Gambit Weekly for the best synopsis on Trout Fishing: “If Tenacious D sang the collected works of Shel Silverstein, it might start to sound like the duo Trout Fishing in America.”

Grimwood’s and Idlet’s holiday release “Merry Fishes to All” was nominated for a 2005 Grammy –- the group’s second Grammy nomination for a “Best Musical Album for Children.” The CD has been named a Gold Award winner, recognizing the best children’s musical recordings available, in the 2005 National Parenting Publications Awards competition, and it was also named a 2004 Parents’ Choice Approved Award winner.

Trinity Presbyterian Church is one block south of the Hinson Road and Taylor Loop intersection. Garvan Woodland Gardens is on Arkridge Road, 3 1/2 miles from the U.S. 270 Bypass off Carpenter Dam Road.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
