Cotton Pony is Tassie’s freshest all original alt-country band. From the swamplands of Invermay, CP leader Megan Q Pennyfeather dons her boots and lays out her soul in a soundscape of woe and heartbreak. But fret not, it ain’t all doom and gloom! There’s plenty of foot stompin’ to be had! Accompanied by Lurkin’ J. Durkin (Joseph Durkin) on drums, T-Dubya (Thomas Willis) on banjo and harmonica and Curly Sue (Susannah Coleman-Brown) on Bess (her black upright bass), Megan leads her band of ponies with great heart and humour. When the Pones let loose, their three part harmonies, twangin’ rhythms, and solid melodic writing will make you want to throw your arms around someone and get all giddy. Giddy up!
