Thanks to FOAOTMAD, the British association for old-time music and dance, for the news that the Kattinge Gathering, the main event of the year for old-time musicians in Denmark, will be held on 14-16 September 2012.
The Gathering is organised by the Dansk Amerikansk Folkemusik Forening (DAFF); admission for the full weekend costs 500 kroner for DAFF members and 550 for non-members. The registration deadline is 12 August 2012; a downloadable registration form is accessible from the Gathering's webpage, where full details of the arrangements can be found. FOAOTMAD adds:
DAFF arranges a monthly old-time jam at Cafe Mellemrummet, Ravnsborggade 11, 2200 Copenhagen N. It is held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. the second to last Tuesday of each month. Everyone can join and it is free.
