Hydra Rebetika Gathering, October 6-8, 2017, Rebetology; Greece

From Ed Emery, SOAS Rebetiko Band and Institute of Rebetology, London:

"We invite all musicians, singers, dancers, friends and fans of Rebetiko to
join us for this year's Rebetiko Gathering on the wonderful island of Hydra
in Greece.

This will be our SEVENTEENTH annual gathering, and we are rather proud of
that fact.

The SOAS Rebetiko Band will provide the core music at the Gathering. We are
also inviting other musicians from Greece and Turkey to join us.

There is no charge or registration fee for attending the Gathering. However
we shall be making a bucket collection at the Saturday concert, to help meet
the expenses of the musicians.

Our dates are Friday 6 to Sunday 8 October 2017, with the main concert at
the Douskos Restaurant on Saturday 7 October (8.30pm), and a local jam
session on Thursday 5 October.

On Monday 9 October we shall be playing at the historic Apanemia club in
Plaka, halfway up the Acropolis in Athens. You are invited to join us.

And here are a couple of nice clips that give a taste of our Gathering in
previous years:

And a lovely clip from from our 2015 concert in Istanbul:

ALSO: For those of you who happen to be in London, from 25 SEPTEMBER 2017 I
shall be starting a series of SEMINARS on Rebetiko music and song. These
will be held on Monday evenings at the School of Oriental and African
Studies [SOAS] at Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG. Drop me a line for
further details".
