The Gathering Traditional Festival
20 February 2013 - 24 February 2013
The Gathering Traditional Festival is firmly established as a popular celebration of Irish song and dance. It has grown in strength since its inception way back in 1999 and incorporates a finely tuned mix of concerts; céilís; dance workshops; instrument masterclasses; a musical tour to Sliabh Luachra; showcase gigs; and storytelling which is new to the 2013 programme. Other highlights include the Schools Outreach Music Programme and a session on the Lakes of Killarney aboard the Pride of the Lakes Waterbus. The stellar line-up of concerts include performances with Dervish, We Banjo 3, Mairead Ní Chathasaigh, Chris Newman, Arty McGlynn & Nollaig Casey, Tim Edey & Brendan Power, Micheal & Macdara O'Raghallaigh along with Catherine McEvoy. The programme also includes The Generations Concert of Sliabh Luachra including musicians Billy Clifford, Bryan O'Leary, Gearoid Dineen, Niamh Dalton and Mick, Michelle & Louise Mulcahy. The Gathering showcase gigs will take place throughout the weekend featuring up and coming musicians and bands.
