The Okee Dokee Brothers

July 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

JOIN US FOR AN OUTDOOR SUMMER FAMILY CONCERT!  IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, CONCERT MOVES TO THEATER.  WE WILL BE TAKING EVERY PRECAUTION AND ADAPTING TO UPDATED IL GUIDELINES REGARDING COVID COMPLIANCE.

 

This American bluegrass/American roots GRAMMY award winning duo has put their passion for the outdoors at the heart of their children’s music.  A five-time Parent’s Choice Award winner, they have garnered praise from the likes of NPR’s All Things Considered and USA Today, and have been called “two of family music’s best songwriters.”

Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander have been exploring the outdoors together since they were kids. Now, as the GRAMMY-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they write songs to encourage kids and families to get outside and get creative. Their latest album Winterland, is a tribute to the season of coziness, family time, and outdoor fun! This cold-weather project is the follow-up to their wildly popular Adventure Album trilogy which was inspired by their extended canoe trip down the Mississippi River (Can You Canoe?), their month-long trek along the Appalachian Trail (Through The Woods) and a joyous horseback adventure through the American West (Saddle Up).

With songs written under wide-open skies and harmonies fine-tuned around the campfire, the natural world is at the heart of their Americana folk music. The Okee Dokee Brothers make room for kids to dance, for parents to share stories, and for everyone to gain respect for nature, each other, and the world we live in.

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets! Seating for this event is limited in order to comply with Illinois guidelines.
