We are delighted to announce the release of The Gloaming’s debut album on Real World (Autumn 2013)
The group of extraordinary virtuoso musicians carve new paths, connecting the rich Irish folk tradition and the New York contemporary music scene. From haunting sean-nós songs to raucous folk explosions, they make music that is both ancient and utterly new. Featuring New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddle master Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh and Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionaird – well known for his contribution to the legendary Afro Celt Sound System.
In their much-anticipated UK premier The Gloaming will perform at Union Chapel, London N1, Wed 19 June, 19:30. Followed by Premiers in Holland at The BimHuis, Amsterdam on Thurs 20 June and Paris for the Cite De La Musique Festival at Centre Culturel Irlandais Fri 21 June
