The Gathering is set to do exactly what it says on the tin and gather together the best and boldest trad musicians, singers and dancers for one weekend of toe-tapping, roof-raising celebrations and festivities. This year’s festival programme is loaded with concerts, céilís, sessions and workshops along with the addition of a late-night festival club. Wander through The Gleneagle Hotel from February 22 to 26 and experience a truly immersive festival vibe where the love of trad culture unites and inspires young and old. New to the 2023 programme is the late-night festival club. Kicking off at midnight, the festival club will host Scottish folk band Talisk and the genre-busting quartet Mec Lir on Friday night. And on Saturday, the exhilarating sounds of Glasgow’s Kinnaris Quintet followed by supergroup Ímar will have you dancing your way into the early hours on Sunday morning. And all under the one roof, sure where else would you get it!
