The Johnny Possum Band have delivered their own brand of alt country/bluegrass/folk music since 2005, featuring guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and upright bass. From performances throughout New Zealand, to appearances at festivals and venues in the USA, the band have developed a solid fan base and following.

The Johnny Possum Band have played extensively throughout New Zealand and gained international exposure with two mini tours of the USA. The first in 2007 saw them receive the ‘Rising Legends’ award from the National Old Time Country and Bluegrass Association. Their second visit in 2008 received rave reviews and a growing fan base as they toured the heartland of this musical style following the Appalachian mountains and travelling through Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland. A return visit is on the cards for the latter half of 2012.

This is their one and only Wellington concert and has been especially arranged for the Wellington Bluegrass Society.
