From the Great Wall of China to packed auditoriums in the Holy Land and more recently being the first Irish band to perform at the greatest music festival in the world, “Rock in Rio” on front of an estimate audience of two hundred and forty thousand people, Dervish have come a long way in seventeen years.
Formed in 1989 by a group of five musicians, Liam Kelly, Shane Mitchell, Martin McGinley, Brian Mc Donagh and Michael Holmes who came together to record an album of local music which was released as The Boys of Sligo.
Inspired by the project they decided to develop this informal gathering (which gathered weekly to play sessions in local pubs) into a working band under the name Dervish which was chosen as it related to any group of spiritual people who become enraptured by music.
