ROAMING WITH THE GLOAMING IN BERKELEY
One online dictionary notes that few English speakers will know the meaning of the word gloaming. The rapt audience at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley on November 12, 2014, will remember it from the brilliant performance of the word made flesh in The Gloaming. This band of creative peers is led by Irish fiddler Martin Hayes and sean-nos singer Iarla O’Lionaird, and they were superbly supported by Dennis Cahill on guitar, Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh on hardanger fiddle, and Thomas Bartlett on piano. They would vehemently resist the dubious soubriquet but the term Super Group -often bandied about to describe various Irish musical combinations– is apt.
