Old   Time   Gatherings   as   they   have   evolved   in   North   America   are   relaxed   affairs,   intended   primarily   as   an opportunity   for   musicians   to   socialise   and   jam   (session). There’s   little   of   the   programming   and   performance that characterizes music festivals. As   this   is   the   first   Irish   OT   gathering,   we   have   sketched   out   a   rough   outline   of   activities,   but   this   will   flex with   what   attendees   prefer   to   do.      We   are   also   allowing   for   some   folks   who   may   just   want   to   play   music, and others that may also want to brush up their skills and repertoire. Friday evening warm-up jam from 7-12pm. Join as you arrive, meet up with friends, make new acquaintances. Saturday (up to 18.00) Jams   can   start   up   in   a   number   of   locations   in   and   around   the   Roadside   Tavern,   depending   on   numbers and preferences. Workshops    will    be    offered    on    fiddle    and    banjo.    (We    may    add    workshops    on    mandolin    and    guitar accompaniment if there is demand.) A small charge will be made for attending these. Saturday Evening What   follows   will   take   place   in   the   Burren   Storehouse,   next   to   the   Roadside   Tavern,   and   will   be   free   to registered   participants.   (Some   may   prefer   just   to   continue   jamming   in   other   locations!)   depending   on numbers attending, we may open the evening to the ticket-buying public (€10) Dan Levenson – talk and performance (19.00) by this renowned master of OT music Barn Dance (20-22.00) Jam sessions to follow Sunday morning (from 10.30-13.00) Jam sessions We may have a dance workshop, depending on demand Sunday afternoon Those not traveling can keep sessioning.
