Aug 19: Possum Trot & Tom Greene

Possum Trot & Tom Greene

Brace yourself for a "contra dance wall of sound" of French Canadian, New England and Southern music. Tallahassee's own Tom Greene will be calling the dances to the music of Possum Trot, an inter-generational band that "blends the new and the old" in a swashbuckling sensation.

Possum Trot is:
* Pete Sucsy, banjo and guitar;
* Laura Price, fiddle;
* Benny McDowell, piano;
* Eleta Sucsy, penny whistle; and
* Kai Sucsy, percussion.
