Old Time Folk Music For Modern Times

The Quiet American is husband and wife duo, Aaron and Nicole Keim.  In Hood River, OR, they live an artistic life, making music, building musical instruments, writing books, crafting folk art and raising their 4 year old son Henry.  Their connection to folk tradition is undeniable, even as they find new ways to sing old songs and unique ways to incorporate music and art into their teaching and performing.  Mainly influenced by Depression era string band music and the folk revival, they use ukulele, banjo and accordion to accompany their harmony singing, pick old time tunes and lead the audience through group singing.  A modern, home grown folk revival: The Quiet American.  

Aaron also builds musical instruments as Beansprout Musical Instruments.  Nicole's art is at Marmalade Creations.
