Dervish whirls on to LCC stage

The traditional music of Ireland takes center stage tomorrow at Leeward Community College Theatre.

Chosen as Ireland's entry in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Dervish's 18-year history has seen the group as ambassadors of traditional Irish music to every corner of the world—literally, in some instances, as they've accompanied Ireland's Prime Minister and President on trade missions and state visits.

» When: 8 p.m. tomorrow
» Cost: $25 general admission; $21 for students, seniors and military; $15 for children 12 and under
