Dervish

Dervish is one of Ireland's most exciting tradition-rooted bands. With its combination of virtuosic instrumentation, high-energy arrangements and the ultra-sweet vocals of Cathy Jordan, Dervish continues to weave its own path in Ireland's great musical heritage. Although the group formally came together in 1988, the roots of Dervish trace back much further. Flute and tin whistle player Liam Kelly and accordion player Shane Mitchell first collaborated at the age of seven and nine, respectively. Within three years, the duo was playing regularly at a pub owned by Kelly's father. During high school, the two musicians formed a band called Pointin. Although the group placed first in a contest at the Ballyshannon Folk Festival and appeared on popular Irish television program The Late Late Show, the group failed to record. While attending college in Sligo, Kelly and Mitchell performed with a rock band called Who Says What. The band also included Michael Holmes, a bass player and songwriter who later added guitar and bouzouki to the band's sound. A turning point in Dervish's history came when Kelly, Mitchell and Holmes were joined by mandola and mandolin player Brian McDonagh, a founding member of Oisian. After recording three albums with Oisian, McDonagh had left the group and moved to Sligo. Although the musicians were temporarily separated into two camps in the mid-1980s, with Kelly and Holmes moving to London and Mitchell and McDonagh remaining in Sligo, they reunited when Sligo-based label Sound Records sought to record an album of local musicians. The resulting all-instrumental album, The Boys of Sligo, was released in 1988 and featured Martin McGinley on fiddle, and helped to establish the group as a working ensemble. Following the album's release, the group added Jordan on vocals and adopted the name Dervish. McGinley was subsequently replaced by Shane McAleer, a fiddler from County Tyrone who had won the All-Ireland Championship in 1990. Due to technical problems, Dervish's second album, Harmony Hill, released in 1993, was recorded twice. Two years later, Dervish released two albums (Playing with Fire and At the End of the Day and toured in the U.S. Live in Palma, released in 1997, is a 22-track double CD, recorded during a concert in Palma, Majorca. Although the majority of their repertoire consists of traditional tunes, Dervish has been increasingly performing original tunes by Kelly and Holmes. The duo's songs have been covered by Irish bands such as Capercaille. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
I'm back Fenians all.
Have I told you lately that I love you all tall and small.
And that ain't all.
I wish I could take you all back to my place, but its....
Much too small.
Love it!

Their 2001 album cover art is disturbing. But beautiful music!
One of my favorite bands. Tom Morrow is the fiddle player now, isn't he? And isn't Seamie O'Dowd on guitar now? Just thinking it might be good to update the profile. Thanks.

My wife and I were at the release party for Harmony Hill in Cork in 1993. Now *that* was a party. The audience were so keyed up it is a wonder we didn't burn the city to the ground.
picked up their first album, harmony hill, in sligo as i was ending my backpacking trip around ireland. such a wonderful momento, i wore it out over the years. so glad they are still going strong!
this is prob my favorite band when it comes to Irish music
barryemarsha l l
I love the accordion.

Heard this group live last year. They are full of energy and great music.
Dervish is just about "The Best" traditional Irish band to ever form. Their modern arrangements are incredible. I love the beautiful medleys they've created from traditional tunes, honoring the roots but driving it home with a rhythmic force that would eclipse the likes of Led Zeppelin!
