Just wanted to say howdy to everybody out there in Radioland! Last month marked 12 years together as a band, and while we didn’t get to celebrate with a show, we’re still extremely proud that Possum Jenkins continues to play out, write and record as frequently as time allows.
This Saturday, March 12, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, PJ will be featured on Folks Like Us; a show from NYC-based net radio station Little Water Radio that is “dedicated to folk, bluegrass, Americana, and alt-country music that’ll make your mouth water for fried green tomatoes, apple pie, and ice cold lemonade.” Tune in and check out dj Rachel Utz as she spins a ton of Possum tunes from our various releases.
The Carolina Ramble & Reunion is back on the books for Saturday, October 1. The event continues to grow and evolve with each passing year, and we’re in the early stages of planning what will surely be the BEST RAMBLE YET! Stay tuned for early bird ticket info that we’ll be releasing in the coming weeks.
A few months ago, Possum’s sister band Wurlitzer Prize (featuring the amazing Molly McGinn) was awarded a grant from the Arts Council of Winston-Salem, and are in the process of cutting some new tracks with the one and only Doug “Get It Wet” Williams at Electro Magnetic Radiation Recorders. The as yet untitled release will hopefully be out later this year.
With two Possum band members and their wives expecting, the Possum family continues to grow. Not surprisingly, that will pretty well grind things to a halt for us in terms of live shows at least until the fall. There’s talk of releasing some of our acoustic recordings from some recent house shows, but nothing is firm at present. Stay tuned!!
