Focal Point Friends of Old-Time Music Present: Big Possum String Band

The Big Possum Stringband is setting out on their first trans-continental tour since winning 1st place in the prestigious Clifftop Old-Time Band competition! Armed with the Holy Trinity of old-time instruments (Tessa Dillon on fiddle, Seth Swingle on banjo and Evan McBrayer Collins on guitar), the Big Possum is young, excited, and wants to stay up all night. Expect pounding breakdowns, banjo showpieces, bittersweet fiddle melodies, high lonesome ballads, rounder songs, and attempts at humor (mostly banjo jokes); the Big Possum has something to please all discerning listeners.
