about the show
Music The Gathering is an original, interactive, and energetic folk music show. Inspired by scenario and strategy games, Music The Gathering features a band of musicians who tell fantasy stories using songs with full harmonies and multi-instrumental arrangements, complete with jokes, toasts, and riddles. At strategic moments, band members may cast spell cards against each other, which force them to complete crazy challenges while performing the music.
With a vast repertoire of traditional, world, and original music, the band uses their unique arrangements to bring songs to life in new and interesting ways. Each set is filled with zany characters, plot twists, improvisation, and laughs. With different games and songs in each set, each show allows the musicians and audience members to gather and create a truly unique experience together.

Music The Gathering features musicians Olivia Harding, Asia Lupo, Marc Mills, and (on occasion, if they're lucky) Kevin Maphis, the show's Lead Story Developer. With three years of collaboration under their belts, the group has a vast repertoire of original arrangements across multiple genres, from traditional Celtic to contemporary world and original parodies. All songs use intricate three-part harmonies, with Asia and Olivia singing strong mezzo-soprano and contralto parts, respectively, and Marc providing a wide baritone range. In addition to mixed vocal harmonization, all three musicians also accompany themselves on upwards of fifteen different instruments. They play various folk and classical string, woodwind, and percussion instruments, which allows them to take familiar traditional songs and arrange them in unique ways. All members are actors with a strong background in comedy and improvisation, and they take pride in performing with all the energy and passion they can muster. Youthful, hardworking, and professional, these three performers are dedicated to sharing music and all its magic with audiences everywhere.
