Ron Short and the Possum Playboys
February 24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Possum Playboys are keeping alive and vibrant the tradition of bands that once traveled the two-lane highways of America, playing music that pleases and satisfies the eternal human longing for companionship, dance and fun!
Featuring fiddle, slide guitar and “Cajun” accordion, the Playboys play a lively mix of “jam band” music from “swamp to swing”, “early rock to be-bop”—- that sets feet tapping, hips swinging, and people singing! The Possum Playboys are a hard working band that pride themselves on their ability to weave seamlessly in and out of musical genres while staying firmly rooted in the earthy tones of traditional Appalachian music. And, though the musical traditions may be familiar, the songs and interpretations are fresh and new!
