The Gloaming

In a much anticipated UK premiere, The Gloaming collective carves new paths connecting the rich Irish folk tradition and the New York contemporary music scene. From haunting sean-ns songs to raucous folk explosions, they make music that is both ancient and utterly new.

The super-group came together at Grouse Lodge Studios in West Meath in early 2011 and features New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddle master Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhin Raghallaigh and Irish singer Iarla Lionaird well known for his contribution to the legendary Afro Celt Sound System and arguably the finest singer of his generation.

'Neither slavishly traditional nor willfully contemporary, it sought out uncharted terrain (some of which was undoubtedly familiar) and, most impressively, welcomed their audience as essential passengers on that journey' Irish Times
