“If Dervish are in town – or anywhere remotely within reach – don’t dare miss them” – Chicago Herald
County Sligo’s finest export, Dervish are one of the great bands ever to have come out of Ireland. Fronted as ever by entrancing singer Cathy Jordan – whose power to charm an audience is surely a match for anybody in the whole of Ireland – Dervish draw from seemingly limitless depths of talent, finesse, subtlety and fiery energy, making them as complete a band as is to be found anywhere in the tradition. It is not without good reason that Dervish have become one of Ireland’s most enduring line-ups – over an extraordinary 25 years together they have constantly raised the bar, developing one of the most distinctive, yet expertly balanced sounds anywhere in traditional music and inspiring a whole generation of young Celtic musicians in their wake. 25 years in the making, a Dervish show promises to be a rousing, uplifting night, sure to drive away day to day cares and raise the spirits in the way that only great music can.
