An evening with Dervish The ICC is delighted to welcome back Dervish, the world famous traditional Irish band; one of the most sought-after acts on the live music circuit.
Dervish are a traditional Irish music group from County Sligo, Ireland. They were formed in 1989 by Liam Kelly, Shane Mitchell, Martin McGinley, Brian McDonagh and Michael Holmes. The band was originally formed to record an album of local music which was later released as The Boys of Sligo. They later formed Dervish. The name was chosen as it relates to groups of spiritual people who are enraptured by music.
Dervish: the world famous traditional Irish band; one of the most sought-after acts on the live music circuit. Exceptional muscianship, breathtaking vocals, high-energy sets of tunes and instantly compelling songs. The band's live shows are characterised by their carefully crafted arrangements, as they subtly explore the endless rhythms and complexities that go to make great Irish music. Dervish are: Brian McDonagh (Mandola), Liam Kelly (flute and whistles), Tom Morrow (fiddle), Shane Mitchell (accordion), Cathy Jordan (vocals, bodhrán and bones), Michael Holmes (Bouzouki).
Were delighted to welcome them to our stage at the start of their UK Tour 2013!
