After more than a quarter century together, Dervish concerts like last month’s performance at the Music Haven at Proctors offer a myriad of moods from high energy jigs and reels, played with fluidity and intuitiveness, to beautifully measured ballads; from charming lyrics of life and love, to inspiring melodies that lift audiences from their seats.

Led by the masterful voice, stories and stage presence of Roscommon-born Cathy Jordan, the acclaimed Celtic band – Tom Morrow (fiddle, viola); Shane Mitchell (accordion); Liam Kelly (flute, low whistle); Séamus O’Dowd (guitars, harmonica); Michael Holmes (bouzouki) and Brian McDonagh (mandola, mandolin) – is utterly captivating.
