Derina Harvey Band
Last show of the season at the Occidental has been cancelled.
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; layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Derina’s powerful voice. dHb has been likened to a rockier version of Canada’s Great Big Sea, if fronted by Adele, and has earned a reputation as a 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 is now poised to break into the United States, having been selected for three juried US showcases. The group’s showcase at the Arts Northwest Conference in Tacoma in 2017 garnered them the “Best Showcase” Award and resulted in numerous bookings in the Northwest. Their trips to showcase at the Western Arts Alliance conference in Las Vegas (August, 2018) and Performing Arts Exchange in Orlando (October, 2018) have already garnered interest across the US with bookings in the Pacific Northwest and south-eastern states.
