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 wide 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. Dusty back porch or shining concert hall, The Quiet American reminds you why home made, hand crafted, American folk music will never fade away.

In addition to traditional American folk instruments, Aaron and Nicole are well known for their ukulele playing. Since 2004 they have been all over the world teaching ukulele techniques and performing at ukulele festivals. They are ambassadors for old time folk music in the ukulele world, adapting banjo and guitar techniques to the ukulele and publishing several books. Nicole's handwritten notation and illustrations in these books are the perfect compliment to Aaron's arrangements. Aaron is also a luthier, building instruments for Mya-Moe ukuleles (www.myamoe.com) since 2011 and as Beansprout from 2007-2011.
