Imagine if Brian Eno or even Sigur Rós played traditional Irish music ... and you are coming close to the sound of the Gloaming. -- Sydney Morning Herald
Forging new connections between the rich Irish folk tradition and the New York contemporary music scene, the virtuoso musicians of the Gloaming make music that is sparse, authentic, and heartrending. Featuring New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddle master Martin Hayes, hardanger fiddle innovator Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh, and Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionaird (Afro Celt Sound System). Catch one of only a few US dates by this critically adored all-star ensemble.
