Listening to Colby Crehan belt out bluegrass and country-folk tunes, you’d swear you were deep in Appalachia rather than northern Vermont. Armed with an acoustic guitar and a set of powerful pipes, the vocalist leads the Burlington-based band PossumHaw. Formed in 2004, the award-winning group has evolved into a well-oiled machine with stunning vocal harmonies and stellar acoustic instrumentation. Jazz and blues influences weave through a repertoire of original music fueled by Crehan’s skilled songwriting. These components come to life on the band’s fourth release, Waiting and Watching, and onstage, where these deft musicians take turns shining.
