“If Dervish are in town – or anywhere remotely within reach – don’t dare miss them” – Chicago Herald
Dervish returns to Jaqua Concert by popular demand! 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.
