It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do’ The Boston Globe
Over their 38 years as one of the worlds most heralded Irish music ensembles, Cherish the Ladies has won the hearts of audiences around the globe with their rousing blend of traditional music, captivating vocals, and propulsive step dancing. To quote the Boston Globe: “It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do”!
This Grammy-nominated Irish American super group was formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene, and they have since toured the world performing in the finest performing arts centers and festivals, played the White House and the Olympics, recorded 18 critically acclaimed albums, and released an Emmy award winning PBS television program, “An Irish Homecoming”.
Under the leadership of the 2021 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow and All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, these women put forth an incredible experience that includes masterful music, song and dance that is brimming with sheer talent.
