The Gloaming

When: Fri., April 21, 8 p.m. 2017

While their roots may be in traditional Irish music, the Gloaming are anything but conventional. Crossing geographical and generational boundaries, the band includes Irish fiddle master Martin Hayes, vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird and indie-rock pianist Thomas Bartlett, the group’s youngest member and a Vermont native. Joined by American guitarist Dennis Cahill and fiddler Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh, the guys, who also have successful solo careers, breathe new life into ancient Gaelic ballads and dance numbers. The band hits up Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts with tunes from its 2016 album 2, giving listeners a chance to hear Celtic music through fresh ears.

Price: $10-40.
