Possum Jenkins’ Carolinacana 2011
Latest News & Ramblings
We don’t know if there’s five of you or 500 of you that check in here at PossumJenkinsBand.com, but we’d like to apologize for failing to update the site since last fall. Ever switch computers and then get locked out of stuff that you haven’t actually known the login info for in years? Anyway, we’re back online here at Possum Central and will do our best to keep things updated.
After successfully hosting the inaugural Carolina Ramble & Reunion last fall, Possum has been popping up in many of our usual haunts. We recently had the distinct pleasure of opening up for our friends the Wrinkle Neck Mules at Southland Ballroom, and also participated in the St. Wish Benefit at Ziggy’s alongside many of W-S’s finest musicians. We also road tripped to Johnson City for a show at the Willow Tree–a fantastic new venue run by our friend Teri Dosher.
In the next few months, we’re back in both Boone (5/2 @ Boone Saloon) and Winston-Salem (5/9 @ Old Winston Social Club). And while the fall seems like a long ways off, we’re already making plans for the 2nd annual Ramble, taking place on Saturday, September 26, so mark your calendars!!
As always, thanks for your continued support as we celebrate our 11th year together. We’ll see y’all soon.
Dear friends, fans and family,
On a snowy night in February 2004, four guys stepped onto the modest corner stage at Murphy’s Irish Pub in Boone, North Carolina to play their first ever show together in what appeared to likely be a short-lived collaboration. One harmonica player, two vans, four albums, five states, ten years and more than 300 shows later, Possum Jenkins is still making music together every chance we get.
Sometimes, it’s even good.
Many of y’all who came out to our earliest shows have continued to support our musical endeavors at every turn, buying our records and attending our shows in smoky dive bars and at outdoor festivals, or perhaps in a funky old movie theater or somebody’s living room. Others of you have climbed aboard the Possum train more recently, but are a fiercely loyal and supportive bunch. To show our appreciation to ALL of y’all—the most dedicated believers in the Possum gospel—we’ve decided to throw a little party. You are cordially invited to attend.
On Saturday, October 4, 2014, Possum Jenkins will host the inaugural Carolina Ramble & Reunion just outside Boone in Bethel, NC. The family-friendly event will feature free camping (tent/car camping only), yard games, kids activities, food, a bon fire and lots of LIVE MUSIC by Possum Jenkins, The Worthless Son-In-Laws, Wurlitzer Prize, Soul Benefactor, Molly McGinn and more!!
We hope that this will be the first of many such events and we truly hope that y’all will consider joining our families for this special show.
Reservations are limited to 200 adults and are $35 per person. Children 12 and under admitted free with a paid adult. The event is BYOB.
To make your reservations, CLICK HERE or please make checks payable to Carolina Ramble, LLC, and mail them to: Carolina Ramble, 686 Church Road, Boone, NC 28607
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!!
In order to pull this soiree off, we’re going to need a few helping hands to handle a variety of tasks including helping with children’s activities, parking cars, hauling gear and more. Volunteers will receive discounted tickets to the Ramble, along with a few hospitality perks.
