The Gathering

The Gathering is a weekend confluence of musicians, reciters, singers and dancers held annually on the NSW October Long Weekend. Events are centred around the Hartigan Centre in Meehan Street, YASS.

Players, performers and dancers come together to enjoy a programme of music and dance workshops, poetry recitations, concerts and dances as well as hours of informal music sessions.

The basic idea of the weekend is to encourage participation in all aspects of our bush traditions - bush music, songs, dance, yarns, and poetry.

There are workshops to learn tunes by ear or music, song workshops, dance music workshops, dances and, of course, showcase concerts.
