Chan Centre Presents

The Gloaming

Sat November 15 2014 8pm
Chan Shun Concert Hall

The Irish Times calls The Gloaming “one of the great forces in Irish music.” Uniting five musicians with deep roots in the music of the Emerald Isle, The Gloaming navigates between the contemporary and the traditional, to a place where creativity trumps predictability with music that is haunting and beautiful in equal measure.

Known for revelatory live concerts, the group features Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionaird, best known for his contribution to the legendary Afro Celt Sound System, fiddle master Martin Hayes, Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) and Hardanger fiddle innovator Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh.

Formed in 2011 from a collective desire to transcend the genres they had individually become known for, The Gloaming released its first album in January 2014 to rave reviews. Don’t miss this Chan Centre debut.
