Dervish are an Irish traditional music group from County Sligo, Ireland who have been described by BBC Radio 3 as "an icon of Irish music."
Formed in 1989 by a group of five musicians, Dervish has come a long way in 17 years. Their concert performances are a myriad of tones and moods ranging from high energy tunes, played with fluidity and intuitiveness, to beautifully measured songs, from charming lyrics of life and love, to inspiring melodies that lift audiences from their seats. They continue with ground breaking force to bring the roots of Irish music to almost all continents.
