The Gloaming is a renowned ensemble comprising five master musicians – each with their own distinguished solo career. Formed in early 2011, they first met at Grouse Lodge Studios in County Westmeath to discuss a collaborative concert at the National Concert Hall Dublin – a performance which sold out before they had rehearsed a single note. After discovering a shared musical aesthetic, the band decided to join forces and record their eponymous first album. Even before its 2014 release, the industry was abuzz about their debut record. The Gloaming surpassed expectations, and their project was named to many ‘Best Album’ lists that year, among which that of The Guardian, The Irish Times, NPR and Mojo.
