Hard to believe that Dervish, a band that has played regularly at the Somerville Theatre, in front of thousands at the ICONS Festival in Boston in 2009, and The Lowell Folk Festival last year, have elected to play the intimate Backroom at the Burren Session Series.  This will be a special experience indeed for band and audience alike.  Two shows one at 7:30, the other at 9:30 will sell out rapidly.  

Dervish have been the definition of that great "big" sound of multiple member trad bands since their founding back in the 1989.   With the spectacular vocals of Cathy Jordan and an all-star level of musicianship from each of the band members, this group is one of the most important of the last twenty years to spread the wealth of Irish traditional music around the world.  

The Burren Backroom series is new and principled on intimate, informal presentations held in the atmospheric space created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings will feature core performers from many different aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Tickets are $30 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited so get your tickets today!
