Says Mick McHugh, “The Gathering is about Irish music at its essence - getting people together and having a great time”. In fact, The Gathering musicians often get out on the dance floor with their audience! The Gathering brings together some great contemporary Irish-Australian musicianship to put their unique stamp on Irish music. They have recorded for ABC Music, toured internationally, and entertained at major festivals such as Port Fairy Folk Fest and Australian Celtic Festival.
The Gathering are regulars at Irish Murphy’s in Brisbane and Finn McCool’s in Fortitude Valley and at Surfers Paradise.
Be sure to bring your dancin’ shoes and singing voices for this craicin’ (fun) Irish band!
