As Irish trad champions Dervish celebrate 21 years in music, with an acclaimed double album of live concerts, the group’s singer Cathy Jordan recalls the highlights of Dervish’s extraordinarily rich life on the road, including performing between Iron Maiden and Sepultura, and a unique Bob Dylan birthday gig! Plus, fellow band members Michael, Brian, Shane, Liam and Tom select their own personal milestones.
