On-Demand Video: WNYC's New Sounds Presents Irish-American Supergroup The Gloaming

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Irish music super group The Gloaming perform live in The Greene Space, presented by New Sounds (Janice Yi)

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.

It would be wonderful if you could post the lyrics to the haunting beauty of song 44.
How lovely, the entire performance.
