Take a musical journey along Ireland’s rugged and wild coastline with traditional Irish music icons, Dervish. For more than 30 years, the sextet from the Emerald Isle has reigned as one of the leading names in traditional Irish music. The internationally-acclaimed ensemble includes some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, including Cathy Jordan (vocals and drums), Shane Mitchell (accordion), Liam Kelly (flute/whistle), Brian McDonagh (mandola/mandolin), Tom Morrow (fiddle), and Michael Holmes (bouzouki). From music festivals to an impromptu performance at the Great Wall of China, Dervish thrills crowds across the continents with its passion, lyricism, and high energy. Recent recipients of the BBC Folk Lifetime Achievement Award, The Guardian says, “Dervish are simply brilliant. . . They carry Irish history with them.” Don’t miss “the most compelling, most soulful Irish traditional folk band playing today” (The News Journal).
