County Sligo’s finest export Dervish has now been at the forefront of Irish traditional music for two decades. In that time they have taken their music worldwide, appearing everywhere from the Great Wall of China to razil’s Rio Festival, in front of an audience of 250,000. Fronted by the unique vocals of Cathy Jordan - still regarded by many as the most distinctive voice in Irish music today - the Dervish instrumental line-up is bursting with creativity, as they continue to explore and capture the irresistible energy and intricate flavours of the Irish tradition. Support band Trí (Irish for three) is a young band based in the Midlands, whose fresh approach to Irish music has seen them develop a growing reputation over the last two years. “This is true craftsmanship” Tonder Festival, Denmark
