Heather Luttrell and the Possumden have been peddlin' their whiskey-soaked traveling show of Blues and Americana up and down the East Coast tirelessly for the past two years, gaining fans, notoriety and a few speeding tickets. With two part harmonies, acoustic guitar, banjo, drums and kazoo, the duo brings a big sound for two people, often surprising venues and fans with the large powerful voice that comes tearing out of Heather’s wiry tattooed frame like a freight train. The witty lyrics of a story teller and the voice of a gospel queen gained Heather the nickname Possumdiva. While Heather was laid up with a hurt back in 2014, she decided to learn the banjo -- her latest CD, Boatpaddle, is the result. Sharing stages with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Ani Difranco, playing dive bars and concert halls, Heather Luttrell and the Possumden are coming to a town near you, so grab a glass and pour yourself a strong one. Sit back and enjoy the show.
Stage Time: 4:45pm
Not just a great one-armed guitar player, a great guitar player. A skilled guitarist with over two decades of experience, Lefty Williams holds songcraft and musicianship at a premium. By emphasizing each equally on his ironically titled sophomore album Snake Oil, he engages and enlightens the listener. In turn, we fall for Williams’ powerful guitar licks and candid songs, often long before the origin of his nickname—he was born without a right hand—is clear. And by then, it’s just another dimension to his talent.
