The Gathering Irish Band is fronted by award winning Irish musician Mick McHugh. The band pride themselves on getting their audiences up and having fun with their high energy Irish dancing trad tunes and well-known rousing Irish sing-a-longs, blended with an array of popular and classic covers from Avicii and Mumford, to Creedence and Johnny Cash!

“Reliable, creative, collaborative and never fail to get the room rocking!”

Barry Corr, CEOIrish Australian Chamber of Commerce

Says Mick McHugh, “The Gathering is about Irish music at its essence - getting people together, and simply having a great time”. In fact, Mick often gets out on the dance floor with his audience!

The Gathering brings together some great contemporary Irish-Australian musicianship to put their unique stamp on Celtic music. They have entertained at major Australian festivals such as Port Fairy Folk Fest and have regularly performed for The Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce at both their annual business awards, and St. Patrick’s Day Corporate Lunch in Melbourne. Be sure to bring your dancin’ shoes for this craicin’ (fun) Irish band.
