Facebook Group for Registrants

The best part of Outlandish Gatherings is getting to meet your fellow fans.  If you’re on Facebook, we’ve created an Outlandish Gatherings Registrants Group where you can post introductions, get to know one another between now and August.   This is a closed group–so though you and other members will receive notifications and postings in your newsfeed–your other facebook friends will not.  You may also use the group to ask questions, find roommates, and get advice on what to pack, etc.

Be sure to like our public page on Facebook as well. You can share posts from the public page with other friends and groups–they’ll be able to see them.

If you are a Twitter user, please be sure you are following us at: @OutlandishGath.  We will be using the hashtag: #OG2015 when tweeting.

When Gwyllin the Bard performs “The Woman of Balnain” at Castle Leoch, Claire is affected by the music, though she can’t understand the words. When Jamie translates the words and she learns the song is about a woman who slipped through the stones on a faery hill, you can almost feel the hairs stand up on the back of Claire’s neck.

You can hear this haunting melody for yourself when our special guest Gillebrìde MacMillan performs for us at Outlandish Gathering 2015! (more…)
