The Gloaming in studio
New video of the band performing “The Pilgrim’s Song” from forthcoming second album
The Gloaming’s second album is due later this month, ahead of the band’s run of five sold-out shows at Dublin’s National Concert Hall. The opening track on the album is “The Pilgrim’s Song”, which brings together two Seán Ó Ríordáin poems namely A Sheanfhilí, Múinídh Dom Glao and Oilithreacht Fám Anam, and here’s a video of the band performing the track during recording sessions in Real World Studios last December. Watch out for a forthcoming special report and interview in the paper from the recording sessions for the album.
