Folk Icons Dervish Release ‘The Great Irish Songbook’ on April 12

Irish Folk Icons Dervish’s new album ‘The Great Irish Songbook’ features Dervish performing with over a dozen luminaries across an eclectic range of genres including Imelda May, Brendan Gleeson, Andrea Corr, David Gray, Steve Earle, Vince Gill, Rhiannon Giddens, Kate Rusby, Jamey Johnson, The Steel Drivers, and Abigail Washburn. ‘The Great Irish Songbook’ shows the extraordinary scope of the album and the musicianship behind it. 

‘The Great Irish Songbook’ is a fitting tribute to Dervish’s nearly 30 years in the business. ‘The Great Irish Songbook’ delivers 13 of the most iconic and best-loved Irish Folk songs. 

In assembling their line-up of featured guests, Dervish reached out to the many artists with whom they’ve bonded over a shared passion for Irish folk, then called on each musician to select their most cherished song within the genre. Recorded mainly at The Magic Room in Sligo, the finished product finds each collaborator imbuing the album with their own distinct sensibilities while lovingly upholding the time-honored character of the songs. ‘The Great Irish Songbook’ both preserves the spirit of each song and brings a new vitality to iconic traditional songs of their homeland.

The album ‘The Great Irish Songbook’ will be released on April 12th, 2019
