The Gathering 

When: Sat., Dec. 15, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $22-29

Released last year, The Gathering is a wintry seven-song cycle written, sung and played by several of the state's leading contemporary folk purveyors, including Polecat Creek founder Laurelyn Dossett and Carolina Chocolate Drop Rhiannon Giddens. Alternately sentimental, funny, cheery and dark, it's an elliptical rumination on the worries and rewards of the holidays in the Carolinas. The sound of sterling bird song comingles with the hugs of strange uncles, while the smell of mom's cooking in the kitchen brings estranged families back within distance of one another's smiles. The quintet responsible for The Gathering graciously returns for an encore of last year's performances with the North Carolina Symphony. —Grayson Currin
