Some historians believe that humans in the western world had different sleep patterns before the lightbulb. They'd fall asleep at sundown, wake for a period of an hour or couple hours, then fall back asleep again until dawn.
The time between the two phases of sleep is poetically called "middlesleep." People used that period to write, pray and reflect, visit friends, and engage in petty crime - all kinds of fun and fulfilling activities.
In the fall of 2013, Thomas Kenny posted on Craiglist for a penny whistle player and singers. Then, while walking down the hallway at the music school where Tom is a teacher, he heard the traditional fiddle stylings of Graham Terry. Not long after, the group started to meet regularly and formed Middlesleep. Clark Terry, brother of Graham, joined the band in the winter of 2014.
Middlesleep takes elements of different folk and traditional music, throws in some pop sensibilities, and weaves it all together with beautiful harmony.
