Sep, 2007

The popular Irish folk band Dervish, also Ireland’s entrant at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, will release their tenth album on October 26. Travelling Show promises to reach record peaks in sales. It will come out during the Sligo Live festival, running from 25 to 29 October, a long Bank Holiday Weekend…
Keeping up with the Celtic tradition, Dervish enjoy huge popularity across Europe and in the United States. This year Dervish did not manage to defend the fame of all-time winner Ireland (Ireland has won the ESC trophy the record seven times). Even so, the band have continued their successful carrier, especially on the folk music front.

Among the popular names at the Sligo Fest are Buena Vista Social Club, Alabama 3, Duke Special, At First Light and others. I can only envy those who’ll go to the the gig! Check out the official website: http://www.sligolive.ie/
