“It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what these ladies do,” says the Boston Globe speaking of Cherish the Ladies, Grammy-nominated, Irish-American super group.
Formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene, they have toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics, and recorded 15 outstanding albums including their latest, “An Irish Homecoming – Live From Bucknell”.
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.
On this Sunday, September 29th at 8.30pm, they take to the stage in The Bush Hotel with Mirella Murray on piano accordion, Nollaig Casey on fiddle and Heidi Talbot on vocals. They’ll also have the hot footed Nathan Pilatzke and Declan Mc Hale dancing a few Sean nós steps in the show.
The gig is being organised by The Sessions at the Shannon committee, as a fundraiser for their upcoming festival on the October Bank Holiday weekend as part of Carrick 400. Tickets €15: 0719671000.
