Old Time Folk Music For Modern Times
The Quiet American is husband and wife duo, Aaron and Nicole Keim. A home-grown modern folk revival, their music incorporates traditional ballads, banjo breakdowns, raggy choruses, gospel duets and other dusty Americana gems, all delivered on a variety of acoustic instruments. Gathered around a single microphone, Aaron and Nicole present a concert experience that pays tribute to old time folk music traditions yet strives to connect to a modern audience. Both trained as music teachers, they travel the world teaching ukulele, banjo and folk music and publishing their own instructional books. In addition, Aaron builds musical instruments under the name Beansprout and Nicole sells her hand craft as Marmalade Creations.
