On June 1st 2011, The Okee Dokee Brothers began a canoe trip in Minneapolis, MN and continued down the Mississippi River for the next 30 days until they arrived at St Louis Gateway Arch. During their month long journey, they camped, canoed and filmed but most importantly, composed the songs that make up their new album for family and kids, Can You Canoe? Produced by Dean Jones in his Rosendale, NY hay-bale studio, the record features guest appearances from Garth Hudson (The Band), Elizabeth Mitchell (You Are My Flower), as well as Morgan Taylor and Rachel Loshak (Gustafer Yellowgold). Package includes the 15 track CD, as well as a DVD about the Brother's 30 day canoe trip! Can You Canoe? won the 2013 Grammy for Best Children's Album.

We purchased it as a gift for our 6 year-old who loves camping and the outdoors. Of course, he loved it. He sat in front of the CD player and listened to it on repeat several times the first day, and even went "camping" in his room while listening to it. By the end of the week, we had all listened to it several times in the car as well. But the amazing thing is: my husband and I did NOT hate it! It didn't drive us crazy. In fact, we are actually enjoying listening to it with him. As it turned out, every single one of us was singing along by the end of the week.
The appeal is difficult to describe, but it is something like taking the innocent themes of Raffi songs and putting them to the tune of The Zac Brown Band.
I certainly recommend it if you at all like the sound of bluegrass, folk or soft country. We are already planning to buy more Okee Dokee Brothers' music in the future.
