Martin Hayes, Thomas Bartlett, Dennis Cahill, Iarla Ó Lionaird, Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh
The Gloaming is a newly minted collective of five remarkable musicians poised to become a vital force in Irish music.
Navigating between the contemporary and traditional genres, their creativity trumps predictability – with music that is haunting and beautiful in equal measure. The super-group features New York pianist Thomas Bartlett, Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, Irish sean-nos singer Iarla Ó Lionaird, fiddler and hardanger innovator Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh and fiddle master Martin Hayes – they came together at West Meath’s Grouse Lodge Studios in early 2011 to create something utterly new with a nod to the ancient.
The Gloaming is set to release these recordings in Spring 2013, following a wildly successful tour of Ireland that included a sold out début at The National Concert Hall of Dublin.
