The Possum Trot Orchestra ... isn't that a great name for a folk/country/bluegrass/blues band? My stepson John Minton is a founding member, along with Susie and Rob Suraci, and they have released their latest CD, called "Harbor Road" (for which John wrote many of the lyrics and sings lead vocals). John plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, accordion, keyboards & lap steel in this band, plus who knows how many other instruments ... the boy is a musical wizard!
(OK, disclaimer here ... I may be a little bit prejudiced ... plus I guess I must admit that he can no longer be considered a "boy", being a tenured professor at Indiana University-Purdue University, Ft. Wayne, and having a wife and grown daughter!)
I received my copy of the CD yesterday, and have been playing it non-stop since then. The music is sometimes sweet, sometimes amusing, sometimes heartbreaking ... Americana all the way. If you want to hear it (shameless family-promotion follows!) go to www.possumtrotorchestra.com and click on the "Sample/Buy the Music" link to cdbaby.com. I really love this CD!
