March in NYC brings the celebration of the best of Irish culture and this special World Music Institute (WMI) presentation is no exception.
Dervish and Eileen Ivers' UniVERSal Roots will line out for a special all-star Celtic performance at the Peter Norton Symphony Space in Manhattan on Saturday, March 5, presented by WMI.
Dervish, a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award winner, is an ensemble that includes some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, fronted by one of the country’s best-known singers, Cathy Jordan.
Irish American Grammy Award winner Eileen Ivers, who the New York Times describes as “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” will also be performing. Ivers was a touring musician with Mick Moloney’s Green Fields of America, a founding member of Cherish the Ladies, and a former star of Riverdance. She will be joined by her band UnIVERSal Roots.
