Possum is joined by his sidekick Wichita. We play a few tunes, most notably the Belvidere Hornpipe. We also discuss our recent trip to Clifftop, try to annoy “Butters the Cat”, Un-box a package that arrives from Amazon during the broadcast, listen to some calls from the hotline and finish off with an old quadrille.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
