An Audience with Dervish - A Special Presentation

Legendary Irish Folk music band bring a special presentation to the intimate setting of the Irish Institute of music and Song

The special 70 minute presentation by the recent BBC Lifetime Achievement Award winners will embrace an audience led evening in a “questions and answers” style setting

The evening will cover the bands 32 years career the instruments they play, the Irish traditional of music and all aspects of their career as a well as many spellbinding pieces of music from their 14 album catalogue of Irish traditional music.

Dervish's founding members were childhood friends in County Sligo—the same creatively fertile ground that spawned a group of legendary fiddle players who emigrated to the U.S. in the 1920s, who then recorded the first known Irish-music albums of any genre.  As young musicians in 1989, the band members were commissioned to record an album of music from the renowned Sligo tradition. Despite feverish response from all around the world, Dervish turned down record-deal offers and launched their own label, releasing their sophomore effort Harmony Hill in 1993 and immediately seen the album climb the Irish mainstream charts and International Roots music charts.

Through the years, Dervish has appeared at some of the world's biggest festivals, from Glastonbury to Rock in Rio, with the "great and good" of the entertainment industry while steadily making their name as one of the foremost purveyors of Irish folk music.

As they approach their 33th year, Dervish again prove the enduring significance of even the most timeworn songs and tunes.
