The Gloaming is a sum much greater than its already impressive parts. Virtuosic fiddlers Martin Hayes and Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh, Dennis Cahill on guitar, Iarla Ó Lionáird on vocals and Thomas Bartlett on piano create a rare combination of traditional Irish melodies, jazz, contemporary classical and improvisational flourishes. The soaring, “old style” sean-nóssinging from Ó Lionáird is a special treat rarely heard outside of Ireland. Those who witnessed The Gloaming’s first appearance at the Mondavi Center in 2014 will surely return for another musical journey with this unique group.
Prior to The Gloaming concert, you are invited to the free Corin Courtyard concert, featuring The Mighty Murphys.
The Mighty Murphys, an acoustic Sacramento-area band, play traditional Irish music, getting toes tapping all around! Incorporating musical experience from multiple genres, the band delivers upbeat Irish reels and jigs, plus heartfelt ballads. Band members are Day Griffin on Irish flute, Christine Sproul on vocals and high whistle, Seiko Cummings on fiddle, Robert Cummings on guitar and Mike Kahn on percussion.
