In 1989, a group of five musicians—Liam Kelly, Shane Mitchell, Martin McGinley, Brian McDonagh and Michael Holmes—came together to record an album of local music, which was released as The Boys of Sligo. Inspired by the project, they decided to develop this informal gathering (which gathered weekly to play sessions in local pubs) into a working band under the name Dervish [web site | Amazon.com], which was chosen as it related to any group of spiritual people who become enraptured by music.

Over the following two years Dervish honed their craft as a formative band. In 1991, Roscommon-born singer Cathy Jordan and all-Ireland champion fiddle player Shane McAleer joined the band, giving them the right balance to produce the first Dervish album, Harmony Hill, which was released in 1992. It wasn't long before the impact of that album became apparent, winning widespread critical acclaim and the album was described by many as "a landmark Irish traditional album." The impact of the recording was immediate. Its artistry, musicianship and maturity won outstanding praise from the media, placing Dervish to the forefront of the bands working on traditional Irish music. Substantial TV and radio exposure for the band and the album began to open all kind of doors. Dervish soon became one of the most sought after acts on the live music circuit worldwide and have continued to remain so over the years.

Dervish concert performances are a myriad of tones and moods ranging from high energy tunes, played with fluidity and intuitiveness, to beautifully measured songs, from charming lyrics of life and love, to inspiring melodies that lift audiences from their seats. All the elements are drawn together by Cathy Jordan's masterful stage presence. Her stories to the songs and her interaction with the audience draws people into the music in a way very few performers can achieve.

It's now over 25 years since first coming together, and with four of the original members still at the helm, Dervish are more in demand than ever. Their colorful career has taken them to every corner of the globe and has seen them share center stage with such names as James Brown, the Buena Vista Social Club, Oasis, Sting, R.E.M., Beck, and many more. Dervish are one of the most respected acts of modern time in World/Roots music worldwide. Their musical genius and innovative approach will ensure that they will be always be a leading force in Irish music, bringing the world the joy and excitement and fun that is traditional Irish music.
