'Gather' playlist

Rachel Reid McCann

Rachel has curated a playlist for the festival under the theme, “Gather”. Expect a selection of music that celebrates the human desire to be close to one another and form networks of support; music that shines light on the spaces that people gravitate to when they need to feel the warmth of community.
