Dervish are to celebrate 30 years together in their home town with a very special concert in the Hawk’s Well Theatre.

Dervish have been bringing Irish traditional music to the world for 30 years, and have played at festivals across the globe – from Rock in Rio to Glastonbury.

To celebrate turning 30 this year, Dervish released their new album The Great Irish Songbook (Rounder). The album is a fitting tribute to Dervish’s 30 years in the business and features Dervish performing with over a dozen luminaries across an eclectic range of genres including Imelda May, Brendan Gleeson, Steve Earle, Andrea Corr, David Gray, Vince Gill, Rhiannon Giddens, Kate Rusby, Abigail Washburn and others.

The Great Irish Songbook Special Concert with DERVISH featuring Special Guests Imelda May, David Gray, Kate Rusby and actor Brendan Gleeson will take place at The London Palladium on Thursday, 19thSeptember 2019.

Dervish will also be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 for their incredible contribution to folk music.

This December at the Hawk’s Well will be a fitting celebration of their 30 year musical journey playing in their home town where it all started.
