Formed in 2017, the Big Possum Stringband are the fresh, new faces of folk. They are young, excited, and passionate about the rich legacy of traditional Appalachian music of the American South.


Tessa Dillon (fiddle) and Seth Swingle (banjo) are joined by multi-instrumentalist Evan Collins to make oldtime country music’s hottest new band, and local Adelaide born Bassist Peter Hisco, Director of the Kellycountyrpick, is joining them for the tour.


Fresh off their 1st place win at the 2018 Clifftop festival (generally regarded as the most prestigious contest in the genre), the Possums are bringing their mix of breakdowns, showpieces, ballads and rounder songs to audiences around the nation and the world.


With three-part harmonies, electrifying fiddle breaks and a pounding square-dance beat, the Big Possum Stringband creates a powerful energy that will have you stamping, yelling and dancing along.
