As the year comes to a close, here’s a reminder that our first new release for 2014 is The Gloaming’s much anticipated debut.
Featuring a who’s who of contemporary Irish musicians (Martin Hayes, Dennis Cahill, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh, with American pianist Thomas Bartlett/aka Doveman), The Gloaming’s music is anything but simple nostalgia. Carving new paths connecting the rich Irish traditions with the New York contemporary music scene via Bartlett’s extraordinary playing, it’s haunting and emotionally charged, ancient without being mere reproduction.
For an introduction to The Gloaming this is a preview of ‘Moment to Moment’, an hour-long documentary about the project set for broadcast on Irish national network RTÉ on 30th December at 11.30pm.
The Gloaming is out on 20th January and available to preorder now
