Focal Point Friends of Old-Time Music presents: Charlie Walden & Patt Plunkett
After twenty-plus years of playing traditional music together, Patt Plunkett and Charlie Walden (aka Patt & Possum) have learned a thing or two about getting along musically.  So while some couples might bicker about the bills or where to go out to eat, these two battle over chord progression and set lists.

Charlie and Patt both grew up listening to and playing traditional mid-western fiddle music.  Charlie learned as a teenager at the feet of some of Missouris finest old time fiddlers, including Pete McMahan, Taylor McBaine and Cyril Stinnett and was encouraged by countless others.  Along the way he developed an interest in Canadian fiddle tunes, as the fiddling in the Ottawa Valley is similar in style and shares some common repertoire with Missouri.  As such, other important influences through recordings were Graham Townsend, Don Messer and Ned Landry.  He is also a big fan of Kenny Baker, Chubby Wise, and Joe Meadows where Bluegrass is concerned.

Patt started out by playing piano for her grandfather, Carl Voorhees, who was a seasoned Illinois square dance fiddler.  She went on to play Irish-style piano accompaniment and formed a ceili band in Chicago, which won the local Fleah Ceol twice.  She is also a professional music educator and trained singer. Patts love of music and natural ability as a dancer led her to take an interest in square and contra dance calling and instruction along with individual clogging and step dance performance.

Charlie and Patt are active contra and square dance musicians, performing for numerous such events each year.  They serve as instructors at several music camps, giving instruction on fiddle, piano styles, traditional dance and vocal music.
