Irish band The Gloaming were recorded at the National Concert Hall in Dublin on the final night of their recent residency and RTÉ One are broadcasting the concert on Easter Sunday night.
The band has a long and particularly successful association with the National Concert Hall. Indeed, their 2011 debut at the venue is recalled by band members as ‘the one that sold out before they had the opportunity to write or rehearse any music.’
The Gloaming are Iarla Ó Lionáird, vocal, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Hardanger d’Amore), Dennis Cahill (Guitar), Martin Hayes (Fiddle), Thomas Bartlett (Piano).
Further afield, The Gloaming have wowed audiences at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Sydney’s Opera House, New York’s Lincoln Center, Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, Mexico City’s Teatro de la Ciudad, and Philharmonie de Paris.
Martin Hayes, fiddle player with the band has paid tribute to film-maker Philip King, "who understands our band and our music in a way that makes him uniquely qualified to visually represent what we do. He and his crew have done a masterful job of capturing the feeling and atmosphere of our NCH concerts."
The band's third album, Live at the NCH follows two successful studio albums and features highlights from a total of 24 sold-out shows at The National Concert Hall. The band's sell-out NCH concerts this year took place on March 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 12.
The Gloaming Live at the National Concert Hall can be seen Easter Sunday, April 1 at 11.05pm on RTE One.
