Ten Pounds of Possum…In My Headlights Tonight

And now for some thing completely different…

We’re in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the 12th Annual Kingston Trio Fantasy Camp. Every year we have a few special guests at Camp. This year, one of our guests is Jim Connor, probably the best frailing banjo player in the world. Jim was a member of the New Kingston Trio with Bob Shane and Pat Horine. He also wrote Grandma’s Feather Bed which was a big hit for John Denver.

Jim is a great guy and a wonderful performer and story-teller. This is an old song but Jim has added lyrics and made it into a very timely piece of music. It’s called Ten Pounds of Possum.
