Notre Dame, IN (November 6, 2017)—The Presenting Series is well known for choosing engaging musical theater, often adapted from the most popular children’s literature titles, for its modestly priced Family Show performances. In a first, this season brings the award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers in from the woods and onto the Leighton Concert Hall stage for an all-ages concert! The Okee Dokee Brothers perform Saturday, November 11 at 11 a.m. immediately followed by a meet-and-greet with the artists.
As childhood friends growing up in Denver Colorado, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing were always exploring the outdoors. Whether it was rafting down their neighborhood creek or discovering hiking trails through the Rocky Mountains, Joe and Justin 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.
Joe and Justin record and perform family music with a goal to inspire children and their parents to get outside and get creative. They believe this can motivate kids to gain a greater respect for the natural world, their communities and themselves. The four-time Parents’ Choice Award winners 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.”
