The Gloaming to play the gloaming hour at Body&Soul

The Gloaming to play the gloaming hour at Body&Soul


The Gloaming have been announced to play at at twilight (otherwise known as gloaming) on the Friday of Body&Soul.

It will be the band’s first ever outdoor festival show in Ireland and I can’t think of a better place for the band to play than that main stage on the summer solstice weekend.

Festival director Avril Stanley said:

“We have long harboured an ambition to present The Gloaming at Body&Soul and we are thrilled that they will join us this Summer Solstice. Body&Soul’s June timing is aligned with the ancient Celtic Solstice tradition and The Gloaming’s stunning, virtuosic talent will be a fitting complement to this special time. Even more special for our audience is that their sets takes place during the actual gloaming; that spectacular time before dark when the sky is still illuminated though the sun has set.”

The Gloaming released their superb second album earlier this year and it was premiered in full here first.

There aren’t many tickets left for the festival now.
