Cherish the Ladies“It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do,” says the Boston Globe, speaking of Cherish the Ladies, the long-running, Grammy-nominated, Irish-American super group that formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene and has since toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics, and recorded 15 outstanding albums, including their latest, An Irish Homecoming – Live from Bucknell University, which forms the basis for a new PBS special. With a spectacular blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing, the group takes the best of Irish traditional music and puts on an immensely entertaining show.

Under the leadership of the dynamic Joanie Madden on flutes, whistles, and vocals, the group features Mirella Murray on accordion, Grainne Murphy on fiddle, Kathleen Boyle on piano, and Mary Coogan on guitar, banjo, and mandolin. The New York Times calls their music “passionate, tender, and rambunctious,” and the Washington Post praises their “astonishing array of virtuosity.” They’ve won recognition as the BBC’s Best Musical Group of the Year and the Irish Music Awards’ Top North American Celtic Group – not to mention having a street named after them in the Bronx! – and collaborated with such musicians as James Taylor, Joan Baez, Emmy Lou Harris, the Clancy Brothers, the Chieftains, Vince Gill, Nanci Griffith, and Maura O’Connell, as well as dozens of symphony orchestras. Their name comes from a traditional Irish jig, and these ladies are certainly worth cherishing!
