The UVM Recital Hall  simply could not pass up the opportunity to bring one of their favorite Irish bands to our Recital Hall stage. They presented Dervish, who come from music-rich county Sligo, many times at the Flynn for St. Patrick’s Day, and they really are one of the most accomplished, fun, and experienced Celtic touring ensembles performing today. Fronted by the utterly charming and dulcet-voiced singer Cathy Jordan, Dervish has been entertaining audiences with traditional tunes and songs for almost 30 years. From Rio to China, there pretty much isn’t a place where Dervish hasn’t performed. The Guardian newspaper commented, “Dervish are simply brilliant…they carry Irish history with them.”
