“The Big Possum String Band is a group rich in history and musical skill. They are the 2018 Traditional Band Champions at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival. They showcase the virtuoso talents of legendary fiddlers like Clark Kessinger and Mike Humphreys from the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia. They are a tasteful melting pot of many legendary musicians including the great Ed Haley and countless others. They are a young group of musicians that truly embrace the past, and all this wonderful history comes to life in their presentations. It is talented musicians like these, that insure the music and stories live on for future generations.” - Bobby Taylor

“The Big Possum String Band is a vibrant, young old-time band that both represents and respects West Virginia music while pushing these traditions into the future.” - Becky Hill
