The Okee Dokee Brothers

Sunday, April 26 at 1 and 4 p.m.



Bluegrass and American roots music fans, bring your youngin’ to experience the down-home Americana folk music you love with the four-time Parents’ Choice Award-winning and Grammy ® Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers. Long before the duo won four Parents’ Choice Awards, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing grew up as childhood friends in Denver, Colorado enjoying outside exploits like rafting down their neighborhood creek and hiking through the Rocky Mountains. Now, they infuse their family-style bluegrass music with childhood wonder and passion for the great outdoors, hoping to inspire children and their parents to create their own backyard adventures and ignite their imagination. “The Okee Dokee Brothers remind us of the American belief that we’re bound for better weather. Their album celebrates everyday explorers, young and old, who rediscover that notion daily” (NPR’s All Things Considered).



Recommended for ages 3 to 12

$15 adults; $10 children

Other quotes:

“These Grammy Award-winning artists, who specialize in folk music and Americana, sing of cold-weather joys. …in addition to extolling the fun of ice fishing, dog sledding and encountering a friendly yeti, the songs on Winterland deal with more serious subjects, like life cycles and tolerance.”
-Laurel Graeber, The NY Times



“The lyrics are playful, engaging and subtly filled with life lessons. These are songs that encourage kids to find happiness with fewer material possessions and embrace adventure even in trying situations. Without getting preachy or heavy-handed, Mailander and Lansing come off like happy, kind and fun big brothers eager to show their younger siblings how to have an ethically sound and green-conscious good time.”
– Chicago Tribune
