Dervish in Calgary at the Bella Concert Hall

March 14, 2020


As one of the world's most renowned and imaginative interpreters of Irish folk music, Dervish have devoted the last three decades to gently reinventing the traditional songs of their homeland.

Shane Mitchell (accordion), Liam Kelly (flute/whistle), Brian McDonagh (mandola/mandolin), Michael Holmes (bouzouki), singer and bodhran (drum) player Cathy Jordan, and All Ireland Fiddle Champion Tom Morrow form a remarkable and at times electric combination.

Through the years, Dervish have toured the globe and shared stages with the likes of James Brown, Neil Young, and Sting, becoming the first Irish band ever to play Rock in Rio (the world's most massive music festival), all the while steadily making its name as one of the foremost purveyor of Irish folk music.

“Dervish are simply brilliant.” The Guardian

“A serious contender for The Chieftains’ international space.” The Irish Times

“Capable of playing with note-perfect accuracy and perfect control at nearly supersonic levels” (Irish Voice, New York)
