We're thrilled to welcome the winners of 1st place in the 2018 old-time stringband contest at Clifftop, the Big Possum Stringband! What began as friends playing music together in the mountains of West Virginia quickly developed into one of Appalachia’s hottest old-time string bands. Officially forming in the Winter of 2017, Big Possum Stringband was first comprised of Tessa Dillon, Henry Barnes and Evan Collins, with the addition of Seth Swingle in early Summer 2018. With all members being well-known award-winning individual musicians, the music that Big Possum makes as a group shouldn’t be missed! Being firmly rooted in old-time music, The Possum’s repertoire ranges from both driving and traditional fiddle tunes, to early bluegrass and country numbers that’ll have you up and dancing.
