This year’s Belfast Song Gathering will take place on Friday May 13 and Saturday May 14. The annual celebration of Ulster songs and singing is organised by Belfast Traditional Music and Dance Society in collaboration with An Droichead Arts Centre.
The gathering begins on Friday evening in the American Bar in Dock Street where the Belfast Singing Circle will host a singing session from 9pm.
On Saturday, former All-Ireland under-18 singing champion, Katie Boyle, will host a special singing workshop for families and children in the Green Room at the Black Box in Hill Street from 11am.
The Green Room is also the venue for Len Graham’s presentation entitled It’s of My Rambles at 1pm.
After lunch, the gathering will reassemble upstairs in the Sunflower Bar in Union Street at 4pm for another feast of singing hosted by the Nightingale Singing Session.
Each event in this year’s gathering is free of charge. All singers and listeners are welcome.
