Get ready for music from the West of Ireland with passionate vocals and dazzling instrumentals.
Dervish has been bringing Irish traditional music to the world for more than 30 years. Described by the BBC as “an icon of Irish music,” the band has played at festivals from Rock in Rio to Glastonbury, toured with the Irish president, and struck up tunes on the Great Wall of China.
The lineup includes some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, fronted by one of the country’s best-known singers, Cathy Jordan.
The Guardian newspaper commented: “Dervish are simply brilliant . . . They carry Irish history with them.”
Dervish is long established as one of the biggest names in Irish music internationally. They’re renowned for live performances which match dazzling sets of tunes with stunning interpretations of traditional songs. Their studio and live albums – 13 to date – make up one of the outstanding catalogs in Irish music. They are regular visitors to the U.S., where their concerts are often sold out. However, their fan base stretches across several continents. They spend much of their time traveling across Europe and have also toured Asia, South America, and Australia.
