Possibly named after a track from Radiohead's Hail To The Thief, The Gloaming brings together five giants of Irish traditional music – guitarist Dennis Cahill, pianist Thomas Bartlett, sean-nós vocalist Iarla O'Lionaird and fiddle players Martin Hayes and Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh – for a feast of string-led Celtic fusion. Toying with mournful melodies, bouncy rhythms and the odd experimental flourish, this generation-hopping fivesome have only been performing together for a year, but with each seasoned member drawing from a healthy amount of experience, it's taken them no time at all to create a distinctive sound, and one that's as vibrant as it is stirring. Expect them to push the boundaries even further on their debut album, which we've been promised will be released in the Spring.
