These world-premiere concerts feature newly-orchestrated versions of music from the GRAMMY Award-winning recording Can You Canoe? and latest release Through the Woods.
As childhood friends growing up in Denver, Colorado, Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander were always exploring the outdoors. Whether rafting down their neighborhood creek or discovering hiking trails through the Rocky Mountains, Justin and Joe were born adventurers. Now, as the GRAMMY Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they have put this passion for the outdoors at the heart of their Americana folk music.
Curriculum materials and music clips will be available approximately 6-8 weeks before the concert. Read about Minnesota Orchestra Young People's concerts.
