Further Details:

The Broadisland Gathering, Ulster's longest established Ulster Scots Festival, is a moveable feast! The Gathering, founded in 1993, celebrates Ulster Scots culture and music.

Fronting the concert will be Session Beat, whose musical tastes revolve around the tradition of Scottish and Irish music. The group uses Irish and concert flutes, bagpipes, tin whistles, fifes, guitars, bouzouki, keyboard, snare drum, Congo drums, drum kit and Bodhran. Their exceptional sound is not to be missed, and this is their first appearance at a Broadisland Gathering.

The Major Sinclair Memorial Pipe Band also join the line-up and are regular performers at the Gathering, bringing excellent music and a bit of chat!

This is sure to be an excellent night of musical entertainment for all those who enjoy the skirl of the pipes and Ulster Scots songs and chat!

The Broadisland Gathering has ventured outside Ballycarry for the first time so book not and don’t miss out!
