The 23rd Annual Portland Old Time Music Gathering is happening live and in person!
The dates are Jan. 12 through Jan. 16, 2022.
We are putting together a smaller, Back to Basics Gathering due to the uncertainty of the pandemic. Events will take place on the East side of Portland at the Spare Room Lounge, The Moon and Sixpence Pub, The Village Ballroom, The Alberta St. Pub, and Good Neighbor Pizzeria.. There will also be daily and nightly jamming at the NW Hostel Café Wednesday through Sunday.

We regret the they are not included in the overall price as in previous years, and appreciate your understanding. To attend a workshop you must buy a ticket, and we recommend geting it in advance, as each workshop will be limited to 30 people. A small number of tickets will be available at the door for each event, however we cannot guarantee admittance for walkups.

You might want to catch a fabulous show at the Alberta Rose Theater on Wednesday, Jan 12th. Caleb Klauder and Reeb Willms, and Riley Calcagno and Vivian Leva will play a show that night. This is not a POTMG event, but it will definitely get us in the mood for the Gathering.

We regret to inform our community that the Village Ballroom is not ADA accessible. From their website:
"Due to the historic nature of the building and the ballroom being on the second story, the entrance is not directly ADA accessible. The entrance to the ballroom has a couple of stairs, a walkway, and then more stairs. Once in the ballroom, all doorways are wide enough for ADA accessibility."
For those community members who are unable to attend for any reason, we will be livestreaming the Friday night Concert and the Saturday Night events. Stay tuned for more information.
