The Okee Dokee Brothers

Family Series, Ordway Concert Hall

Approximate Run-time: 60 minutes

Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander have been exploring the outdoors together since they were kids. Now, as the Grammy-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they write songs to encourage kids and families to get outside and get creative. Their brand new album Winterland is a tribute to the season of coziness, family time, and outdoor fun! This cold-weather project is the follow-up to their wildly popular Adventure Album trilogy which was inspired by their extended canoe trip down the Mississippi River (Can You Canoe?), their month-long trek along the Appalachian Trail (Through The Woods), and a joyous horseback adventure through the American West (Saddle Up).

With songs written under wide-open skies and harmonies fine-tuned around the campfire, the natural world is at the heart of their Americana folk music. The Okee Dokee Brothers make room for kids to dance, for parents to share stories, and for everyone to gain respect for nature, each other, and the world we live in.

Ordway Pre-Show Play & Learn

Sunday, November 17, 2019

10:00AM & 1:00PM | Target Atrium

Don’t miss out on the free “Play & Learn” lobbies one hour before each of the Okee Dokee Brother’s performances at the Ordway. Our partners will lead engaging activities with themes connected to the performance:

  • Meet multifaceted, Twin Cities-based visual artist Xee Reiter and create a mini-canvas painting inspired by nature.
  • Pull a screen print, sample water, and think about what water means to you in a youth led Mniówe (a Dakhóta word meaning a place for getting water). This indigenized adaptation of Water Bar in partnership with Healing Place Collaborative is a social space for sharing mní (water) stories.
  • Explore a variety of activities with staff from Voyageur Outward Bound School (VOBS) to learn more about how we help our students find strength, belonging and purpose through life changing expeditions.
  • Imagine yourself getting outside and getting creative with Justin and Joe while taking your photo at the green screen activity with Ordway staff and volunteers!
