The Okee Dokee Brothers have outdone themselves with Through the Woods. We are huge Okee Dokee Brother fans in our house and couldn't wait for this album to come out. They set the bar pretty high after winning a Grammy for Can You Canoe, but they definitely met it. Through the Woods is filled with witty, silly, beautiful and philosophical songs that both children and adults can all enjoy. Besides the amazing music, the adventure album also includes a fantastic DVD that documents the writing of the album while on a hiking trip on the Appalachian trail, as well as talking with fellow musicians they met in the area.
The album garnered a GRAMMY nomination in 2014. They traveled through the Southwest for another album and DVD, Saddle Up, which was also nominated for a Grammy in the best children’s album category. Joe and Justin also published two picture books under Sterling Publishing (Sterling Children's) titled Can You Canoe? And Other Adventure Songs and Thousand Star Hotel. Their primary branding artist, Brandon Reese, illustrated the books. In 2013, The Okee Dokee Brothers embarked on their second adventure, a month-long trek on the Appalachian Trail. They hiked, camped, met mountain musicians, and wrote the songs that make up their second CD/DVD in their Adventure Album Series, entitled Through the Woods. Also produced by Dean Jones, this album emulates the instruments and styles heard in traditional old-time Appalachian music.
The Okee Dokee Brothers. Through The Woods: CD & DVD - An Appalachian Adventure Album.
The Okee Dokee Brothers - childhood friends and current band mates Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing, won a Grammy for Best Children’s Album of the Year for their first album called Can You Canoe? A Mississippi River Adventure (2012). They followed up that successful formula (a CD along with a DVD) with this second effort, based upon a one-month trek along the Appalachian Trail in May of 2013. During their hike they met local musicians, wrote some more songs, and relished the history, crazy instruments, and various styles of bluegrass mountain music. Like its predecessor, Through the Woods.

Childhood best buds Justin and Joe set out on the Appalachian Trail to capture the down-home, fiddle-happy sound that makes up Through the Woods. Mountain musicians inspired the backwoods feel of this free-spirited bluegrass jamboree, highlighted by the jangly title-track opener, the square dance-ready Fiddlestick Joe, and the earthy, banjo-laden lullaby Baby Mine. Through the Woods The Okee Dokee Brothers.
