On-Demand Video: WNYC's New Sounds Presents Irish-American Supergroup The Gloaming
Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Fresh from the release of their widely acclaimed debut album, Irish-American supergroup The Gloaming visited The Greene Space June 20, 2014 for an intimate evening of performance and conversation – and one of their only New York appearances of the season.
The all-star ensemble is made up of extraordinary musicians, individually successful in their own right. Together, their collective sound creates a haunted world where spellbinding sounds of Celtic music meet the spare rhythms of minimalism and the artistic ferment of New York’s post-rock, post-classical scene.
The Gloaming brings together: New York pianist/composer/producer Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman); Irish fiddler Martin Hayes; Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill; Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, the Irish master of the Norwegian hardanger fiddle; and Iarla Ó Lionáird, the foremost traditional sean-nós singer of his generation.
Hear one of this year's most striking and evocative albums recorded live for New Sounds and hosted by John Schaefer.
