Music & Education Series
We are a not-for-profit concert and education series providing a mutually beneficial connection between performers and audiences. Through the efforts of our wonderful team of volunteers, we book, promote and host musicians in a supportive, intimate, and accessible settings. We provide unique musical experiences and fostering a sense of community. Significantly, every musical event is accompanied by a social justice or education initiative. We also provide conferences on music and healing, and workshops with musicians in local schools exploring such topics as inclusivity, gender equality, and kindness.

“I have now had the distinct pleasure of performing two concerts organized by David Moss-Cornett’s Mossy Gatherings over the past few years. David is one of the most passionate, professional, organized, and warm-hearted music promoters I have come across in my more than 30 years of performing. As such, I would highly recommend Mossy Gatherings to any musicians looking to perform in the Owen Sound area”

“We had heard great things about Mossy Gatherings through our peers and were thrilled that for our very first concert in Owen Sound, we had a room full of warm, generous and kind-hearted folks that gave so much good energy to us performers. It’s clear to us that David has worked hard to foster such an enthusiastic music-loving community, and we can’t wait to come back again!
Again, thank you for everything!”

“My concert, a benefit for the Grey-Bruce Brain Injury Centre, that was initiated and executed by Mossy Gatherings was the most beautiful concert I have ever done in my career. David Moss-Cornett is an amazing, visionary and organized host. His attention to detail was impeccable. I am honoured to have done a concert under his banner.”

“The first time I had the privilege of working with Mossy was an eye opener for me. It is rare in the arena of promotions of live music entertainment that you experience the due care process. The thoughtfulness of the event focusing on the people, the individuals. That is who I have come to know and respect in Mossy: the intense focus on the highest experience for all, everyone. Our most recent performance with Mossy, I remember being hosted for the night, I was invited to his house, welcomed in as family, and given breakfast the next morning before setting of on the road. I’ve heard it said that Mossy has the biggest heart, he give 110% from the heart. I would not hesitate to work with Mossy.”

“I’ve had the pleasure to play at Mossy Gatherings in Owen Sound twice, and each time has been wonderful. David (Mossy) is a highly caring promoter who takes care of every detail and the team is enthusiastic. Everything runs smoothly, so that the artist and audience can get the best experience possible. Thanks again Mossy and crew!”
