Grammy-nominated, Irish-American group “Cherish the Ladies” will perform for one night only at Roscommon Arts Centre on Thursday 25th August at 8pm.
The group formed in New York in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene and since then they have toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics, and recorded 16 outstanding albums including, “An Irish Homecoming”.
Under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, these ladies create an evening that includes a spectacular blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements and stunning step dancing. Their continued success as one of the top Celtic groups in the world is due to the ensembles ability to take the best of Irish traditional music and dance and put it forth in an immensely entertaining show.
They’ve collaborated with such musicians as The Clancy Brothers, The Chieftains, Vince Gill, Nanci Griffith, Don Henley and Maura O’Connell as well as being the featured soloist with over 250 nights of symphony orchestras. Their name comes from a traditional Irish jig, and for over thirty years, these ladies have and continue to be worth cherishing!
