The Lexington Gathering

This four-day winter music festival bringing Kentucky's traditional arts to the Commonwealth's largest epicenter. They welcome hundreds of visitors from across the country into this bucolic, walkable downtown for a weekend featuring the “old masters” of traditional mountain music; dance callers from throughout the state; performances by accomplished and emerging string bands; youth workshops and performances; academic presentations; jamming for all skill levels; dance, singing, and instrument workshops; literary readings; instrument and art vendors; and some of our finest farm-to-table eating experiences. Kentucky’s rural diaspora is a lineage largely responsible for the Commonwealth's unique and diverse cultural heritage. Because these Kentuckians migrated to nearby urban centers for work and education, Lexington is a perfect place to explore the boundaries of these traditions and enjoy the melting pot revival of these arts.
