Hangin’ it up for now — Our final Gig! – This Friday, August 12, 9pm – (Starry Plough, Berkeley)


It’s been a great few years, and we’re very grateful to have played well over 100 gigs together.

But with the departure of yet another member, we’re going on an indefinite hiatus.

Join us for a final show at our home base, The Starry Plough. The excellent Marin-based band, The Gasmen, opens at 9 o’clock; we’ll follow, joined by original members Paul Anderson and Jason Courtney!

For over three years now, the Elderberries have been heard in pubs and cafes and on the streets in the San Francisco Bay Area, playing for private parties, weddings, wakes, charity events, and more. We are a reliable céilí band, having hosted a well-attended monthly Irish dance for nearly two years.

We’re game to play. Contact us:
