Bluegrass by Possum Haw Opens New Season at Old Firehouse
The Old Firehouse is opening its 2016 season on Friday, April 8, at 7:30 p.m., with an old favorite of Firehouse-goers: the Vermont band Possum Haw. This is a special combination: the drive of bluegrass and the original lyricism of folk, delivered by one of the finest female vocalists in the region, Colby Crehan. Formed in 2004 by Colby, her husband and banjo player Ryan and lead guitarist Charley Eiseman, the group has evolved into a well-oiled machine with stunning vocal harmonies and stellar acoustic instrumentation. Jazz and blues influences weave through a repertoire of original music fueled by Crehan’s songwriting. In addition to finely-crafted music provided by the entire band, front man Ryan Crehan makes audiences feel right at home with wonderful stage presence and wry humor. Possum Haw is what the Northeast folk and bluegrass music scene is all about: excellent original acoustic live music delivered with skill, sincerity and personality.
The Old Firehouse is located at Mountain View Road and Route 140 in Tinmouth. Doors will open at 7 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10, 90 percent of which goes to the performers. Homemade desserts, coffee and tea will be available to support community activities. Call Jo Reynolds for details at 802-446-3457.
