Dervish | Flynn MainStage | Holidays | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Thu., March 17, 7:30 p.m. 2016

What better way to embrace the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day than attending a concert of high-spirited strains straight from the Emerald Isle? As front woman for the Irish ensemble Dervish, singer Cathy Jordan gives voice to a repertoire of rollicking reels and gentle jigs sung in both English and Gaelic. Playing together since 1989, the six-member band whisks listeners to another time and place by way of bodhrán, bones, fiddle, accordion, flute and whistle. According to the Dublin Evening Herald, the County Sligo songsters “weave a hypnotic brand of traditional magic, leaving their audience in a state of toe-tapping excitement.”

Price: $15-40.
