  • New Sounds Live: The Gloaming in The Greene Space (Part 1)

    From the New Sounds Live Concerts, listen to the Irish-American "Supergroup" The Gloaming, recorded at our own Jerome L. Greene Space a few weeks ago. The all-star ensemble is made up of extraordinary musicians: New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, gifted Irish fiddler Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Irish master singer Iarla Ó Lionáird. 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. Host John Schaefer also interviews the musicians from the stage.
