It’s been an exciting year for Dervish and one they plan to end in style, with a special concert for fans and family on Thursday, December 27th 2012 at Hawks Well Theatre, Sligo with some surprise guests lined up for this unique concert. Dervish will also perform material from their forthcoming album or the first time. Tickets for DERVISH are available from the Hawks Well Box office Phone 0719161518, for on line booking info@hawkswell.com

This will be the legendary ensemble’s last concert of what has been a very memorable year which has seen DERVISH’s remarkable and distinguished career take many new avenues.

In August, the band signed a publishing deal with The Bucks Music Group in London, where they now join a high profile publishing roster that includes Ed Sheeran, Brian Eno, and many other music business legends. The deal will position the band’s music in the film and TV world for the future. In keeping with the same theme, Dervish were asked to write the music for a new ITV TV series called “James Nesbit’s Ireland” which will be broadcast in mid 2013.
Dervish were honoured to be asked by Irish President Michael D Higgins to perform at one of his first functions at Aras An Uachtarain adding to the list of Heads of State they have performed to internationally.



Liam Kelly from Dervish said “We are really looking forward to the Sligo Show at Christmas. Lots of friends and family continually ask us when we will be performing locally, so this is the reason for the show. Also we have lots of new material that we are looking forward to playing for the first time, so it promises to be an amazing night” Kelly added

Plans are at an advanced stage for the release of the band’s new album in 2013, the album will be the first studio album by Dervish in nearly 5 years and is due for release in February. 2013 is going to be a busy year for Dervish as the band take to the road once again to promote their new studio album. In January Dervish appear at the renowned APAP music conference at The Hilton Hotel in New York City and in February they have a major UK tour planned and in March they embark on their 17th annual US tour.

So book early for what promises to be a special occasion on the Sligo Entertainment landscape.
