Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. They play music for people who take their fun seriously.
“A sublimely musical band,” — Boston Herald
"Rare mix of musicianship, humor and inspiration...impeccable dual lead vocals."
“A singular modern Appalachian style you won’t soon forget.”
His voice is the sonic equivalent of an old denim shirt, creased and worn and reassuring. He makes a primitive banjo and drums sound like the most obvious combination in the world.
“...like the songs were spiked with moonshine”.
— Tony Sheridan, PEOPLE MAGAZINE
For nearly four decades, American fingerstyle wizard Richard Gilewitz has fascinated listeners with 6 and 12-string finger gymnastics while spinning enchanting yarns of a seasoned raconteur.
"His complex, energetic originals have made Gilewitz popular on the festival and club circuits as a solo performer."

Bill doesn’t write his own songs. His greatness lies in his interpretive skills. His husky Texas baritone finds its way into a song’s interior with the mellowness of fine bourbon and the warmth of a Sunday picnic.
“They used to play a place called Corky’s in the Montrose area of Houston. I would get a seat right up next to the stage and sit in front of Bill and try to figure out all his guitar licks.”
— Lyle Lovett
Johnsmith is one of those artists so often under-recognized – he possesses a genius that cannot be denied, ignored, or overlooked. With his faded jeans, his twinkly blue eyes, and his infectious smile, John immediately connects with audiences. You get the sense of a man who loves his life, his family and friends, and who loves nothing more than sharing that love in song and stories all across this land.
Emily Kaitz sings original, largely humorous songs to solo guitar accompaniment. Her music is whimsical, irreverent and highly entertaining.
The musicians that make up Miss Brown to You are capable of an eclectic abandon that few other bands attempt, and they are looking for an audience that appreciates a broad palate of musical colors.
Kevin Welch's poetic songs paint pictures of real people--people you know, people you've seen--so clearly that you realize quickly he's a keen observer of the human experience. His songs have an almost film-like quality in their vision and beauty.
Kevin is well know and well loved in our area. He is one of the performers that everyone wants us to bring back to Eureka House concerts.
The Eureka House, a non-profit concert series, began in the fall of 2004. It arose out of a love of good music and songwriting. We also have a venue, the Eureka Springs Unitarian Universalist Church, which is intimate and possesses fabulous acoustics. We decided to do mid-week bookings so top flight performers would be able to stop over in Eureka Springs on their way to bigger venues. Over the years two things have happened: we have developed a knowledgeable and appreciative audience for good performance and songwriting; and, our reputation has grown to where today performers of renown seek us out. They want to come to Eureka Springs House Concerts and see what the buzz is all about.
We seek to present good music year after year plus be faithful to our motto: "We'll have you home and by 10:00 PM."
