#3604: Twilight Songs

Email a Friend
The Gloaming
From

Hear music that inhabits a twilit world on this New Sounds, featuring a set from the remarkable Irish-American quintet The Gloaming. Comprised of the gifted Irish fiddler Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Irish master singer Iarla Ó Lionáird, together with Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, and New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), the Gloaming delivers deceptively simple, spellbindingly beautiful tunes, rooted in traditional reels, jigs and ballads, yet somehow evolved – transformed, really.  

We’ll also listen to some of the members of the Gloaming in their other musical roles, including a haunting, magical tune from sean-nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird, and Thomas Bartlett in his role as sideman for Antony & the Johnsons.  Plus, music from the Unthanks out of Newcastle England, and music from the Breton-born, Iceland based composer Yann Tiersen.  And more.
