“Their live performances…have been revelatory…one of the great forces in Irish music.” — The Irish Times
“The music of the Emerald Isle may have spread far and wide, but there is little that will be performed that sounds like The Gloaming.” — The New Yorker
Featuring New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, Irish fiddle master Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionáird, The Gloaming carves new paths connecting the rich Irish folk tradition and the New York contemporary music scene. From haunting sean-nós to rousing and emotional instrumental medleys, The Gloaming makes music that is both ancient and utterly new.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the monumental collaboration of five wildly talented musicians for an evening of cherished traditions and audacious, tuneful modernity.
This group of extraordinary virtuoso musicians each have their own highly successful individual careers and all of the musicians have been showcased at the IrishArtsCenter. Thomas Bartlett was last seen at IAC in fall 2013 as a special guest during Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill’s residence, Iarla Ó Lionáird performed as part of Masters in Collaboration VI in fall 2011, and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh will be performing in the Masters in Collaboration series in March 2014
