Tiree Association Annual Gathering Events Return In 2021!

The Tiree Association are delighted to announce the line-up of our 121st Annual Gathering events which are set to take place in November.

Having missed last year’s event due to Covid-19 we are very pleased that the relaxation of event restrictions will allow us to host this year’s event. Having said that, we would like to ensure attendees that all precautions are being taken to ensure both events are as safe as can be. This year’s Annual Gathering Concert will take place on Thursday 18th of November in the Kingsborough Garden Sanctuary, which is located at 79 Hyndland Road (G12 9JE).

We have an impressive list of performers including fellow Tiristich Mary Ann Kennedy and Jamie MacDonald, who will be joined by his Eabhal band mate and singer Kaitlin Ross. This year’s male Gold Medal winner, John Joe MacNeil will also perform and accompanist Kathryn Callender who will lead us in a song or two.

The Chairperson for the night is Ian Lamont, who has strong links to Tiree. Friday the 19th of November will see the return of our Annual Gathering Dance, which is always a night not to be missed.

Gunna Sound will be providing the music, with lead accordionist Campbell Brown and singing sensation Johnny Scoular set to entertain us for the night in the usual venue of the Glasgow University Union.

Tickets for each event are priced at £10 each and need to be prebooked prior to each event, which will help us manage capacity and track and trace details. To do so you can contact us via email – thetireeassociation@gmail.com, Facebook messenger or voicemail/text service on the following number 07763126309 and let us know how many tickets you are looking for, names and contact details. As already mentioned, the committee have very much missed hosting events and catching up with all our members and friends and we look forward to welcoming you all back to our Gathering events in November. If you have any further questions, please get in touch using any of the details above.
