The GloamingConnecting the dots between the rich Irish folk tradition and the New York contemporary scene, The Gloaming collective make their much anticipated UK premiere at Union Chapel. The five-piece super-group features New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddle guru Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhin O Raghallaigh and Irish singer Iarla O Lionaird. Blending hauntingly traditional numbers with raucous folk rock explosions, The Gloaming have managed to create a new style of music that is noth ancient and utterly new. This gig is part of Beyond Barbican - an exciting programme of events taking place outside the walls of the famous arts centre that includes pop-ups, commissions and collaborations across east London. For more information please visit www.barbican.org.uk/beyondbarbican.
