The Gloaming is a collective of remarkable individual talents who share a musical aesthetic. The five came together to explore new music at Grouse Lodge Studios is West Meath in early 2011. They made music that is at once both ancient and utterly new. New York pianist Bartlett, sean-nos singer Ó Lionaird, Chicago guitarist Cahill, fiddler and hardanger innovator Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and fiddle master Hayes is a group of virtuoso musicians yet it is a band with a sound all of its own. Sparse and beautiful. Authentic and tune-filled. And capable of raucous power.
