Possum plays original music by Russell Feathers and a few covers almost every Monday night at the Tavern at the End of the World, Charlestown, MA
Raised on Hump Mountain in West Virginia, Russell Feathers (aka Joe McClure) has been listening to country music all his life. After moving to Cambridge, Massachusetts, Russell wrote his first song about home many years later. The songs kept coming.
Russell is now a member of a string band called Possum. Possum’s songs look back to Hump Mountain for inspiration, as well as offering a quirky perspective on many of the other traditional themes in country music –– alcohol, bad relationships, and dashed hopes.
