NPR's Weekend Edition Profile Set to Air Saturday, April 13
 
London Premiere of  The Great Irish Songbook Live Confirmed for
September 19 at the Palladium

April 12, 2019 - Nashville, TN - Iconic Irish folk group Dervish has released a new album, The Great Irish Songbook, which features performances by a remarkable array of guest vocalists.
 
One of those is Irish actor and director Brendan Gleeson - perhaps best known for his portrayal of Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody in the Harry Potter films - who lends his lilting baritone to the band's spirited rendition of DK Gavan's much-loved classic "The Rocky Road To Dublin," which chronicles the adventures of a man as he travels from his home in Tuam, County Galway to Liverpool.

Listen to the track HERE.
 
The Great Irish Songbook, Dervish's first studio album in more than a decade, is an ambitious project that boasts guest appearances by an extraordinary assemblage of singers and musicians from both sides of the Atlantic.
 
Dervish - Michael Holmes, Cathy Jordan, Liam Kelly, Brian McDonagh, Shane Mitchell, Tom Morrow, and Seamie O Dowd - is joined on The Great Irish Songbook by fellow Irish artists Andrea Corr, Brendan Gleeson, and Imelda May; English singer Kate Rusby; Welsh singer-songwriter David Gray; and from the United States, Steve Earle, Rhiannon Giddens, Vince Gill, Jamey Johnson, The SteelDrivers, and Abigail Washburn.
 
Veteran music scribe Jackie Hayden's review in Hot Press recommends, "If you need an urgent injection of nourishment for  your mind, body and spirit, treat yourself to the this invigorating excavation of the The Great Irish Songbook," while The Irish Edition's Jamie O'Brien calls Dervish "one of the best bands in any genre to ever come out of Ireland" and proclaims the album their "best so far."
 
On September 19, Dervish will premiere The Great Irish Songbook at London's famed Palladium. Special guests David Gray and Kate Rusby will perform on the show and more guests will be confirmed shortly. A full slate of tour dates for summer and fall will be announced in the coming weeks.
 
The band, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, was interviewed by Scott Simon on NPR's Weekend Edition on April 13. Check local listings for time and channel or listen at www.npr.org.
