Liner notes

This album was recorded live in Cork at Éigse Na Laoi 1995: The Gathering. Like good music which does not want to stop, its end was its beginning. Another round was called, and everyone knew the tune – a tune that spins now like the globe itself, creating a celestial music for all who will listen.

    The Gloaming

    Released 17 January 2014

    The Gloaming carves 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: respecting traditions whilst bringing an unconventional energy into the mix.
