County Sligo’s finest export, Dervish are one of the great bands ever to have come out of Ireland and in 2014 celebrate 25 years together. They have played regularly at the Brewery over the years and so it is appropriate that they return here on their anniversary tour. Fronted as ever by singer Cathy Jordan, regarded by many as the most distinctive voice and finest frontwoman in Irish traditional music today, the line-up of fiddle, flute, bouzouki, mandola, bodhran & accordion draw from seemingly limitless depths of talent, finesse, subtlety and fiery energy. Exceptional musicianship, breathtaking vocals, vibrant sets of tunes and instantly compelling songs all come together to make Dervish as complete a band as are to be found anywhere in the tradition.
Onstage, the band's live shows are characterized by their carefully crafted arrangements, as they continue to explore the endless rhythms and complexities that go to make great Irish music. It is not without good reason that Dervish have become one of Ireland’s most enduring bands, with a following that has grown wherever they play around the world – whether representing celtic music at major festivals, playing at The Great Wall of China or setting the room ablaze in the US on St Patrick’s Day, Dervish continue to travel the globe, setting the standard for great, authentic Irish music wherever they go.
“If Dervish are in town – or anywhere remotely within reach – don’t dare miss them” – Chicago Herald
“Twelve tracks of pure class – their best album yet” – Irish Echo on their 2013 album “The Thrush in the Storm”
