Dervish brings the Irish to town

Feb 26, 2013

Rockland — Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., will welcome Dervish, known as the Irish Heartbeat, to the stage Friday, March 8, at 7:30 pm.

Wowing audiences all over the world with its seasoned brand of Celtic music, Dervish has risen to the top of its genre over the past 10 years. Dervish hails from the North West of Ireland and has shared the stage with such popular acts as REM and Sting in front of a crowd of 250,000 at Brazil’s Rock In Rio music festival, the first Irish band to perform at this event. Dervish has toured the world including Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Israel, Switzerland, Sweden and Greece, as well as its native Irish homeland, and has proven itself to be one of the best Irish bands playing today.

General admission tickets for the all-ages shows are $20. For more information on all upcoming live concerts, films, HD broadcasts and events at the Strand, visit; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or send email to
