On Sunday the 6th of Dec we closed Albannach for the entire day , which is quite rare and drove over the mountains to Yamagata City. The reason for this was we had bought tickets to see Dervish who are an Irish traditional music group from County Sligo, Ireland , They were formed in 1989 by Liam Kelly, Shane Mitchell, Martin McGinley, Brian McDonagh, and Michael Holmes and have been fronted by singer Cathy Jordan since 1991. The concert was in the old town hall located in the center of Yamagata city and lasted for about 2 hours , the historic building was perfect for such live music and we purchased a CD of their most popular songs plus a DVD of a previous concert. After the show all the members of the band took a seat at a table and signed CDs for everyone and we got to have our photo taken with Cathy Jordan the lead singer and bodhan player. Pictured below are a few photos we took and a Youtube clip featuring the band.
