The Gloaming ‘Live at the NCH’ out today

Today marks the release of The Gloaming's 'Live at the NCH', a collection of performances culled from two years of shows at their residency in Dublin's National Concert Hall.

Siobhán Long of  The Irish Times said of the performances: “They unquestionably capture the essence of this band whose live performances are akin to mesmerising, whirling dervishes .”

“Each musician (under the persuasive baton of producer Bartlett) brings subtleties and intricacies to the music that almost defy description.” ★★★★★ Sunday Business Post
