“Dervish are simply brilliant. . .they carry Irish history with them.” The Guardian
Dervish have a line-up which includes some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, fronted by one of the country’s best-known singers, Cathy Jordan.
Dervish are long-established as one of the biggest names in Irish music internationally. They’re renowned for their live performances, which match dazzling sets of tunes with stunning interpretations of traditional songs. Their studio and live albums – 13 to date – make up one of the outstanding catalogues in Irish music.
At the end of 2019, Dervish received a prestigious lifetime achievement award from the BBC – a fitting tribute to the band after over 30 years of recording and performing all over the world. Described by the BBC as “an icon of Irish music”, the band have played at festivals from Rio to Glastonbury. They accompanied the Irish President on state visits to Latvia and Lithuania and the Prime Minister of Ireland on a trade mission to China as Cultural Ambassadors, taking time out to play an impromptu session on the Great Wall of China.
The band are immense live and we cannot wait to have them back on the Ropetackle stage.
