The Honeysuckle Possums are a high-energy, all-woman band, playing bluegrass, originals, and old-time mountain music. They have been together since 2009 and have one album with a second in the works. Their music has taken them all over California and they continue to gain praise for their beautiful vocals, carefully crafted harmonies, and spirited style. Their performances at various festivals and concerts continue to elicit rave reviews.

Steve Brogden here. In 2017, I was asked to provide some Americana musicians to play an outdoor concert at the Stagecoach Inn here in Thousand Oaks. Two bands came immediately to mind and the Honeysuckle Possums was one of them. Over 300 people attended that event and the Possums were a big hit that day. Their high-energy, harmonies, songwriting and their sense of humor is what draws me – and others – to them.

The three lead singers, Susan Marie Reeves (guitar, strumstick, ukelele), Rebecca Troon (banjo, fiddle, bodhran, tin whistle) and Sierra Reeves (guitar, mandolin, stand up bass) are all accomplished songwriters. Lisa Macker plays stand up bass and mandolin while joining in on vocals and harmonies. Ruth Alpert is the band’s dancing percussionist…an Appalachian-style flat-footer, who seems to float as she makes it easy for the crowd to dance and clap along.

The Possums’ intention is “to create and share bliss through music”. Their collective joy onstage is delightful, and their performances are carried on a strong current of love and friendship. “Possum” audience members often comment on how that energy is positively contagious!
