The Possum Family Singers are a loose gathering of pesky varmints wailing and playing instruments, with 3 or four-part harmonies, and some darn good singing, too, in the Glam-billy tradition of the West-East Bay, on or under porches from San Leandro to Point Richmond, East to Covelo–and a tip o’ the O’Possum hat to ye from the Ploughy Star!

What makes it happy?  Furry boots,  tiny amps,  fine, goose-bumpery voicings, and cat-slapping fun.

Americana, eclectica, Folk-Rock classics, trads and originals.

Come visit or jump in almost every Saturday from 4-7 pm at the Starry Plough Pub on Shattuck Avenue on the Berkeley/Oakland border.

Draft and bottled beers, tasty pub food and Giant french fries.  No cover–add something to our lovely blinkin’ tippin’ pitcher!  And always tip your bartender.
