When describing Cherish the Ladies, the critics say it best; “It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn't enjoy what they do,” The Boston Globe; “An astonishing array of virtuosity,” The Washington Post; and for the past 25 years, Cherish the Ladies have proven themselves worthy to live up to these accolades and in doing so have become one of the most engaging ensembles in the history of Irish music.
Under the leadership of the dynamic and irrepressible Joanie Madden on flutes and whistles, they have grown from a one-time concert concept to an Irish traditional music sensation and are the most successful and sought after Irish-American group in Celtic music. With their spectacular blend of virtuosi instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing, this powerhouse group combines all the facets of Irish traditional culture and puts it forth in an immensely humorous and entertaining package. They have shared the stage with such noted entertainers as James Taylor, Joan Baez, Emmy Lou Harris, The Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem, The Chieftains, and dozens of symphony orchestras. The Celtic Album, their collaboration with the Boston Pops Symphony led to a 1999 Grammy nomination. They continue to blaze forward and continue to enchant audiences world-wide.
