Derina Harvey Band

An East Coast kitchen party to warm up a cold night!

Far from being just another collection of party-hearty Celtic rockers, Edmonton’s the Derina Harvey Band are great musicians and gifted songwriters who offer a fresh take on traditional tunes as well as their own original jigs and reels. But it’s their remarkable live show that closes the deal, and it’s not surprising that this quintet of expat Maritimers is courting big-time success.

Aside from winning over the crowds at important shows in Western Canada and the Northwest Territories, they got a “best showcase” at the recent Arts Northwest Booking Conference in Tacoma. And their hard-driving rock side has put them on the same stage with the likes of The Trews, Kim Mitchell, and Trooper.

Fronting the band is powerhouse vocalist Derina Harvey, who combines the grit of a blues belter with the haunting beauty of an Irish balladeer. Harvey has music in her genes, from both parents, and polished her gifts for music and performance with a stint at college. And now, after nearly a decade of slugging it out in an array of clubs and bars, she and the band have developed a uniquely satisfying sound.

Their set list includes tasty originals, heartfelt traditional tunes, classic Canadiana by the likes of Stan Rogers, and covers from such diverse artists as Steve Earle, Johnny Cash, and Charlie Daniels.

If you’ve never been so lucky as to attend an East Coast kitchen party, here’s your chance to hear that music played to high-energy perfection. They blew away our Summer Kicks crowd a couple of summers ago and we’re very pleased to bring them back to the hall.
