2018 TALENT

 

Toss the Possum with Bonnie Insull

Laura Zisette • Rob Zisette • Bonnie Insull

Toss the Possum, a family band, puts a unique twist on Celtic, Southern and Old Time fiddle tunes, including Rock-n-Roll and jazz influences.  They are known for their driving renditions of traditional tunes and for creating color and rhythm on the fly.  

Hear Rob Zisette bend and sing on his acoustic fiddle and sizzle on his electric 5-string fiddle.  Add to that his sense of humor, improv looping, fantastic beat-boxing, vocals and other surprises. With Laura Zisette backing it all up on keyboard, you’ve got a band that is ready to create magic with the caller and the dancers.  

For the last 6 years, the Possums have been joined by Bonnie Insull at dance festivals across the country.  A leading light of the Southern California English and Contra scenes, Bonnie complements the band with her energetic fluting and foot percussion.
