Dervish in Concert with special Leitrim Guests to celebrate the national launch of The Leitrim Equation² on Nov 24th at 8pm
Dervish will appear at the Button factory, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 in a special concert to launch the album ‘Leitrim Equation²’. They will be joined on the night by a host of Leitrim’s finest musicians and singers including Eleanor Shanley, Ben Lennon, Dave Sheridan, Charlie McGettigan and many more for what promises to be a wonderful celebration of Leitrim Music. The CD emerges out of Dervish’s regular visits to Co Leitrim over 18 months as part of the county’s Traditional Music Residency and consists of a mixture of songs and music from Dervish with some of the Leitrim musicians they met and worked with during their time in Leitrim. The emphasis of this recording is on the ‘voice’ of Leitrim as explored through familiar Leitrim songs such as ‘Lovely Leitrim’ given a traditional twist. "If wealth could be measured in the beauty of the landscape, in folklore, history, generosity, camaraderie, music, song, stories, strength of character, in sense of place, then Leitrim is one of the richest places on the planet." Cathy Jordan – Dervish.
Tickets €15 on the door or from ticketmaster.ie.
