“The Possums have hearts full of honey. These women clearly love what they're playing. This is true Americana... and they're mighty tight as well. If you could taste the sound, it would be clear country Honeydew Vinewater. Give them a listen! ”

Q: I was wondering if you do any outreach to schools. I am a music teacher at Crane in Montecito. We would love to have you come and play and talk about music with my 3rd and 5th graders!
A: Hello, Rebecca Troon here... I could certainly come and share with banjo and fiddle, and guitar, and talk about songwriting. I can't speak for the rest of the group coming out for free, but I can ask them... Does Crane school have artists come and do assemblies? We could come and do an assembly about this tradition in american music and dance. My regular email is: <troonie2ns@gmail.com> a quicker way to reach me! Cheers, RT
