“With three strong songwriters whose voices blend beautifully,
the future of the folk trio is in good hands.

Gathering Time has really come into its own with Keepsake.”  
– Graham Dean, WBCR, Great Barrington, MA and WRPI, Troy, NY

For over a decade, Long Island folk-rock/Americana/AAA trio Gathering Time has been touring in the U.S and internationally, mixing in new interpretations of '60s and '70s classics among their strong originals. Their sound reflects the voicings and arrangements of the genre's pioneers, The Byrds, Peter, Paul & Mary, Joni Mitchell, and Crosby, Stills & Nash, brought into today with an acoustic-electric alchemy all their own.
            No less an authority than WFUV's John Platt has written that they are "among the finest performers in the New York metropolitan area, whatever the size of the venue, from a house concert to an outdoor festival," with "harmonies that can charm the birds out of the trees, strong original songs, and a savvy repertoire of cover songs, ranging from traditional folk to classic rock. They appeal to audiences of all ages."

            "Gathering Time ... has perfected two separate but related art forms: three part harmony and having a ball on stage! When they harmonize, some sort of fundamental, cosmic concordance occurs that makes you very happy that you have ears.”
            Bob McKillop,

            In addition to concerts of original music, Gathering Time performs specialty shows such as the "Great Folk-Rock Festival," featuring the acoustic classics of the '60s & '70s, "Jews Who Rock," showcasing the work of famous Jewish songwriters and musicians, and "Songs of Conscience," focused on songs of social justice.

            "I have to say that Gathering Time is right up there with the ones we all know -- they are the next generation of great trios with meaningful music performed in awesome harmony."
            Bill Hahn, WFDU 89.1FM "Traditions"

            Gathering Time's first single, a 2007 remake of Peter Yarrow's "Light One Candle," was  spun on stations ranging from NYC's top-rated WCBS-FM to Israel's Galilee plains; their first CD Songs of Hope and Freedom won wide acceptance on folk stations nationwide. In 2012 the trio's second CD Red Apples and Gold rose to #5 on the Folk DJ charts in September, finishing at #19 on the Folk DJ Top 100 for 2012; on the national Roots Music Report radio charts it rose to #12 in October, charting at #76 in the year-end Top 100 Albums. Their third CD When One Door Closes... reached #3 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2014.
            Gathering Time's most recent release, Keepsake, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ Charts for March 2016, with 'Who Knows Where the Time Goes' the #1 song, five more songs in the Top 25, and Gathering Time the #1 artist for the month. The album charted at #4 for the year.

Since then they've followed up with three top-5 singles: "Tanglewood Tree" (Dave Carter), #3 in March 2017; and a joint 2-song release with Mara Levine, "By My Silence" (Bukstel/Annis) and "Too Far to Turn Back Now," (Markus), #1 and #4 in September 2017.

           Currently in production is the next release, Old Friends, featuring GT-flavored interpretations of some of the classic '60s and '70s songs by artists who influenced the trio. Look for it in September 2020..

            "Keepsake... is often philosophical, sometimes sentimental, but ALWAYS wrapped in their magical harmonies! The new CD is certain to incite a goosebumps attack!"
Joltin' Joe Pszonek, Radio Nowhere on WMSC, Montclair, NJ

            "Tight harmonies, interesting arrangements, not only of their own songs, but of some surprising tunes as well. ... Gathering Time is on the rise.”  
            Wanda Fischer, WAMC Hudson Valley Radio, Schenectady, NY
