Twilight Songs

Thursday, May 29, 2014

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.  SEE The Gloaming on Friday, June 20 at 7PM in the Jerome L. Greene Space, as part of the New Sounds Live Concerts.
