Fearless front-woman Derina Harvey
leads this Celtic rock group, who are winners of the People's Choice Award at the 2018 Edmonton Music
Awards. The group offers a fresh take on traditional folk songs as well as an increasing amount of original material. The band has a rocky, rhythmic undertow that is layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Harvey's powerful voice. Derina Harvey
Band has been likened to a rockier version of Canada's Great Big Sea, if fronted by Adele, and has earned a reputation with their high-energy live show.
The band has already covered a fair amount of Canada via the performing arts and festival circuits (over 250 performances since starting 2016), and recently started performing in the United States.
The band has two full length albums as well as several original singles to their credit. Their self-titled debut album (2013) has garnered radio airplay across Canada, and their second album Rove and Go (2016) has become even more widespread, being added at over 30 stations across Canada and tracking at #65 on CKUA's top-played albums for 2016. The band is currently writing original material for a new full length album, to be released in late 2020.
