“ A formidable heir to the throne abandoned by the Bothy Band
. . . simply brilliant.”—Irish Times
Hailing from Ireland’s County Sligo, Dervish plays a sparkling brand of traditional Irish music filled with a freshness that holds proud and fast to its time-honored roots. Fronted by one of the finest traditional singers in Ireland today, Dervish features Cathy Jordan’s crystalline voice soaring above an intricate interplay of accordion, flute and fiddle. The band’s tight, soulful sound is locked down by the rhythms of the mandola, bodhrán and bouzouki, giving Dervish its spring-loaded energy.
