Portland Old Time Music Gathering
Sunday, January 14
For fans of square dancing, banjo playing, guitar picking and everything else acoustic and old timey, January in Portland is the best time of year, and the upcoming winter will be no different. For the 19th straight year, the Portland Old Time Gathering will bring together talented musicians — and those who just love to be around the sound — for five days of family-friendly fun at a variety of venues around the Rose City.
Old time music is a traditional American genre that incorporates a range of styles and instruments, and at the Portland Old Time Gathering, there is room for all: square dances involving live bands and hundreds of gleeful participants, plenty of space for friends old and new to come together and jam, workshops where musicians of all skill levels can grow their skills, and concerts featuring some of the finest old time players in the nation.
