8 March 2020 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm Maison de la Culture
From Ireland… for one night only!
“A formidable heir to the throne abandoned by The Bothy Band, if not a serious contender for The Chieftains’ international space.” – The Irish Times
“One of the world’s most renowned and imaginative interpreters of Irish folk music” – Folk Radio UK
If you plan to attend the concert next weekend, do check with us before coming as the hall can only accommodate 215 people. Also, we recommend that you buy your tickets in advance as the price will be higher at the door.
Described by the BBC as “an icon of Irish music”, Dervish includes six of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, fronted by one of the country’s best-known singers, Cathy Jordan.
Recipients of a Lifetime Achievement Award at BBC Folk Awards, this Sligo-based band marries technical brilliance with a rare sensibility. They are renowned for their live performances, which match dazzling sets of tunes with stunning interpretations of traditional songs.
The group includes: Cathy Jordan (voice, bodhran), Tom Morrow (fiddle), Shane Mitchell (accordion), Liam Kelly (flute/whistle), Brian McDonagh (mandola/mandolin) and Michael Holmes (bouzouki).
Join us at the cozy Maison de la culture de Waterloo on Sunday, March 8 – just 15 minutes from Knowlton, 50 minutes from the Vermont border, and 1 hour from Montréal.
A great way to get an early start on your St-Patrick’s day celebrations. Also, March 8 is International Women’s Day!
