Come experience history, stories, music and songs. The Gathering Dark, consisting of Josh Dunkin and Steve DuRose, will take you on an exciting musical journey from the Weavers’ recording of Goodnight Irene in 1950 to 1958’s Tom Dooley and its WNC origins, culminating in Bob Dylan going electric at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. The Gathering Dark specialize in weaving original songs, cover tunes, poetry, and storytelling into a show experience unlike any other in Western North Carolina.
