Banjos, Canoes, and You

“How did we first learn about the Okee Dokee Brothers?” I asked Mike last night.

We considered for a moment.  Then Mike said:

“You read about them in the newspaper.”

Sure enough, two summers ago I read all about Joe and Justin in the Star Tribune.  We saw them at the Minnesota State Fair with fourteen-month-old Zoe, who loved bopping along to their music.  We bought two of their CDs.  And today, we get to see them at, of all places, the Kimball Public Library!

I am always on the lookout  for music that’s fun for the whole family, and the Okee Dokee Brothers absolutely fit the bill.  (Although, I’m pretty sure I like Americana Folk music quite a bit more than Mike does, but two out of three family members isn’t bad, right?)

We don’t have their latest CD,Can You Canoe? (Pro Tip: hint, hint), but we already know the title track is fabulous.  There’s even a music video:

Pretty great, huh?

And that, friends, is why everyone should read the newspaper.

What’s the best thing you’ve discovered by reading the paper?  Or, what’s your favorite family / children’s music group or song?
