Defiance College's Schomburg Series welcomes Trout Fishing in America Nov. 12

October 30, 2013


DEFIANCE, Ohio – Defiance College welcomes Trout Fishing in America for the next performance in this year's Schomburg Series. The event will be held in Schomburg Auditorium on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. Trout Fishing

Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing and yet seemingly unlikely musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. As individuals, they are about as different as one can imagine. Together, they blend seamlessly in a way that has captured the imagination (and hearts) of audiences of all ages for over three decades. Their infectious mix of folk/pop and family music is the result of their diverse backgrounds as well as growing up in the musical melting pot that is Texas. Their recordings have garnered three National Indie Awards, multiple Parents Choice and NAPPA Gold awards, the American Library Award, as well as four Grammy nominations.

Individual performance tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. The performances are free for faculty, staff and current DC students.

Defiance College, chartered in 1850, is an independent, liberal arts institution in Northwest Ohio offering more than 40 undergraduate programs of study as well as graduate programs in education and business.
