These special events coincided with the release of their second album on Real World Records.
Even before The Gloaming released their debut album in 2014, the Irish Times hailed them as "one of the great forces in Irish music." The group has quickly become one of the world's most renowned live acts, performing to packed houses at the Barbican in London, Sydney Opera House in Australia, Mexico City's Teatro de al Ciudad, New York's Lincoln Center, and WOMAD festivals worldwide, as well as selling out multiple concerts at home from Dublin's National Concert Hall to the Cork Opera House. Their live activity climaxed with the historic Ceiliúradh concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, during which they performed for an audience including Irish President Michael D Higgins to commemorate the Republic of Ireland's first state visit to Britain.
The self-titled debut album was similarly acclaimed, winning Ireland's Choice Music Prize for Album of The Year, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award and making year-end best-of lists in America (NPR Music) and the UK (Mojo Magazine), as well as an Album of the Year in The Irish Times.
