Artist Biography:
The Possum Trot Orchestra is an American roots music ensemble from Fort Wayne, Indiana consisting of SUSIE SURACI {sir-RAH-chee} (vocals, guitar & keyboards), JOHN MINTON (vocals, guitar, banjo, accordion & lap steel), ROB SURACI (vocals, bass, guitar, piano, harmonica & drums & percussion), and DAVE KARTHOLL (mandolin). Picking up from last year's critically acclaimed THE POSSUM TROT ORCHESTRA (Southern Can CDs SCCD 2225, 2005), HARBOR ROAD features thirteen new originals from Susie and John, plus Rob's take on one of Blind Lemon Jefferson's classic country blues. Stylistically, the tracks range across the American tradition, from folk, country and roots-rock to bluegrass and blues. Alongside traditional topics and arrangements (Billy, The Devil at the Card Party, Bad Luck Blues, Buckeystown), the Possums also explore contemporary roots trends, tackling current events and issues (Harbor Road, The House That We Can't Buy, Ed, The Content of Your News) and, of course, that mother-of-all-song-subjects--L-O-V-E--good, bad and broken-hearted (Heart Like Railroad Steel, Knoxville, Appetite, Tennessee Unbound, Winterlight, Wonderful). Hey--when all else fails, try playing Possum!
