Liam Kelly grew up in Sligo Town and is a founding member of the band Dervish. He began playing traditional Irish music at the young age of 8 starting on the tin whistle at school and a couple of years later was taught by Carmel Gunning. He also played the accordion and was taught by the great Alfie Dineen. He then began to play flute at the age of 16 and went on to play in a group called Poitin who appeared on the Late Late Show after winning a talent competition where the Late Late appearance was the prize.

then formed at the All Ireland Fleadh in 1989 after which they have gone on to produce 14 albums along with touring all over the world celebrating 32 years in the music business.

Liam released a solo cd, Sweetwood, in 2010, a duet album, Sets in Stone, with Sligo fiddler Philip Duffy in 2015 and a new John McKenna tribute album in 2021 playing one of the flutes that John McKenna used back in the 1920’s.
