Well looka here, I can post from my laptop.

Ongoingly, the Possum Family Singers play the Starry Plough Saturday Happy Hour, 5-7 PM every First, Third, Fourth and sometimes Fifth Saturday of each month.

The first Saturday every month we hold an empty seat in honor of our lost comrade Scruffy  .  .  .

Matty has quit the band, so we are three again.  A broken plate=more room in the cupboard.  For now we are reorganizing the set list and digging deep for songs that have been neglected or forgotten.    The current lineup is Ann Wright, banjo, fiddle, cello, guitar; Art Peterson, accordion, Ukulele, guitar; Laurie Miller, bass, all on vocals.

Expect SPECIAL GUESTS in the Ghost chair–last week Greg P. this week Kurt R., then, who knows  .  .  .  (Art is in the photo–he was the photographer)

We still play on at the Starry Plough Pub most (except the second) Saturdays, 5-7 PM Pacific.  Well worth a stop-by; no cover, good American-style pub food, many taps, wine, and other beverages.  Kids welcome, too.

2.24.12_22Minutes away from the third anniversary of Scruffy’s untimely demise (4/6/13), still feeling that deep pain of having someone you love snatched away in the night, so unceremoniously, but, hey, that’s me.  I was there  .  .  .  Maybe it’s you, too.  Perhaps our fourteen fans and followers would enjoy a few gratuitous memories of our funny founding member.IMG_5285.
