One of Ireland’s best-loved traditional bands, Dervish will perform a special performance of their 2018 album The Great Irish Song Book at this year’s TradFest Temple Bar. They will be joined on the night by a host of special acts including Ralph McTell, Eddi Reader, Ti’m O’Brien and Cara Dillon.
Dervish emerged from Sligo at the beginning of the 1990s and quickly earned a reputation for their fiery live shows, strong musicianship, and tightly crafted arrangements. Portraying a strong DIY spirit, the band issued a string of high-quality self-released albums throughout the 90’s and 2000’s, earning fans around the world through hard touring and appearances at both folk festivals and major rock festivals like Brazil’s Rock in Rio and England’s Glastonbury. After nearly three decades and 12 self-released recordings, Dervish signed with Rounder Records in 2018 to issue the Great Irish Songbook, their guest-heavy tribute to the county’s most enduring songs. The release features several high-profile guests including country singer Vince Gill, American star Rhiannon Giddens, UK songwriter David Gray, among others. Later that year, BBC Radio 2 bestowed a Lifetime Achievement Award on Dervish for their achievements over 30 years
Dervish will perform at TradFest Temple Bar 2023 at Dublin’s historic National Stadium.
