DCCA presents award-winning Derina Harvey Band


GREENVILLE – Derina Harvey and her award-winning band will perform at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, April 6, as part of the Darke County Center for the Arts’ 2023-2024 Artists Series season. “This exciting show will energize and entertain music fans of all genres,” said DCCA Artistic Director David Warner. “After earning fans across their native Canada, the Derina Harvey Band soon gained followers around the globe via TikTok and is now making inroads in the U.S. from coast to coast,” he stated. The highly anticipated show starts at 7 p.m.

According to Mr. Warner, the Derina Harvey Band, whose genre is labeled “Celtic Rock,” offers a fresh take on traditional folk songs while also performing original material in which they tell stories through their songs. The group’s most recent album, Waves of Home, released in June 2023, features eight original tracks as well as re-imagined folk classics. Band leader Derina Harvey is described as a high-energy performer who takes center stage with humor, masterful storytelling, and powerful vocals. The band is said to “blow the roof off of venues” with their “tried and true brand of traditional music with a kick.”
