Possum Jenkins’ Carolinacana 2011
Latest News & Ramblings
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.
Happy spring possum lovers,
If we could potentially divert your attention away from your NCAA bracket for two seconds, we’d like to let you knwo about our upcoming shows. That’s it…nice and easy. Put the bracket down. Keep reading…
This Saturday, March 29, Possum Jenkins will make a long awaited and highly anticipated return to South Carolina’s Low Country to join nine other bands for Spring Jam Music Fest 2!!! Taking place in Charleston’s Brittlebank Park, the event will kick off at noon and rock on until 9:30 p.m. Possum Jenkins will hit the festival’s Village Stage at 1:10 p.m sharp. Come join us for what is shaping up to be an awesome day in Chucktown.
On Saturday, April 12, Los Possums will be a little closer to home when we again head south to headline Lexington, NC’s High Rock Outfitters. HRO’s lethal combination of great sound, a friendly staff, stellar microbrews and wine, and an all around cozy vibe have quickly made it a favorite for both fans and band members alike. We’ll take the stage at 8:00 p.m.
And last but not least, we’ll be back in the Queen City on Friday, May 9, for an ALT. COUNTRY TRIPLE HEADER at the fabulous Visulite Theatre. Possum Jenkins will be sandwiched between a pair of Charlotte’s finest country-ish rock band–Pullman Strike and Amigo. This show is going to kick ass.

That’s about all the news that’s fit for consumption this week Possum lovers. We’ve still got plenty of snug-fitting black Possum t-shirts (American Apparel!), so give us a shout if you need/want one.
