It’s another exciting episode of Possum’s Big Fiddle Show: Happy Wheatland Edition. The Possum is nestled in by the piney woods in the performer’s campground with Patt Plunkett on piano, Mike “Wichita Slim” Miller on guitar and our special guest Chris Germain on fiddle.Read more
People said it couldn’t be done – like the moon landing (which actually was done on a hurriedly assembled movie set in El Segundo – but that’s a topic for another podcast). Still, here they are – Get Up in the Cool’s Cameron DeWhitt and Possum’s Big Fiddle Show’s Charlie Walden squaring of before your very eyes and/or ears.
This is the crossover podcast extravaganza of the millenium. There’s patter on everything from beer to Garth Brooks to Bluegrass and back to beer, too! Recorded right on the spot at the 2018 Brandywine Revival Festival on June 16, 2018.
We cut down on some banjo & fiddle duets, too. You’ll hear an Ozarks hoe-down Humansville, Kenny Baker’s Brandywine, Pete McMahan’s versions Talk to Dinah & Virginia Darlin’, a Canadian import (duty-free!) Whiskey Before Breakfast and lastly Buddy Thomas’ Turkey in the Pea Patch.Read more
My guest is long-time musical ally and starvation box devotee Mike “Wichita Slim” Miller. He’s coming to you live via Skype from Elkins, WV. We share an adult beverage, take a call on the “hotline” from a listener in the frozen wilds of Ontario, reminisce about our fabled 2012 five boroughs Guinness tour, and try to play a few tunes together across the the internet.Read more
