Possum Crossing String Band

Old time music band from Knoxville, TN.

Possum Crossing String Band

Based in Knoxville in East Tennessee, we play a mix of old time, appalachian, cape breton and folk music with occasional outbursts of Texan, British or Czech melodies.


Band members:

Mike Tarrier, fiddle

As a vet and a farmer, Mike brings all the mules and cows to our music, and adds it to his Irish heritage and Old Time - Appalachian feelings.

Rita Scruggs, guitar

The Lady-of-the-Band, Rita lends her voice the more thoughtfull ballads and songs. Her background as a nurse of both humans and animals adds to the reflections of natural and spiritual beauty around us.

David Creed, banjo

Although an accomplished guitarists, David volunteered to clawhammer his banjo for us. As a Briton and retired university professor, he adds dignity and the air of the Old World to cultivate our redneck escapades.

Libor Viktorin, guitar

A bluegrass lover from Czech Republic, Libor keeps trying to prove that old-time, country and bluegrass music comes from Central Europe.

Jim Womack, bass

Jim joined us recently to bring the base line and order to our musical escapades.
