This year's Gathering theme is "Remember The Good" The talent line up will wake your memory up! It's going to be incredable!

One thing that every artist I've spoken with tells me is that performing in honor of Mickey in the big room where the planned presentations take place is a thrill, but the "guitar pulls" make it so special. Those of us who grew up around singers and songwriters remember the times after the shows when the rush of the crowd wore off and in some room at the Holiday Inn the guitar was passed around. Those days don't happen anymore. Artists go from their planes or tour busses direct to the stage and then back to their modes of transportation and on to the next city. The Newbury Guitar Pulls have become famous and being able to sit a few feet away from some of the most talented songwriters in the world, is a once in a lifetime experience.
Those of you who have been to the Gatherings know...those of you who were there last year will never forget the midnight 'til dawn sessions that took place in 155, the food room, the bar, the lobby and out by the pool. It is a page from the past...something Mickey might have called "Sweet Memories".

Believe me when I say that the pickers and singers enjoyed it as much or more than those who were there to hear the music.

See you June 29, 30 and July 1. Or a few days before or afterward.
