Cherish the Ladies – at The Cedar
Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 7:30pm
KFAI is pleased to sponsor an evening with Cherish the Ladies at the Cedar Cultural Center on Thursday, December 12, at 7:30 pm.
Under the leadership of the dynamic and irrepressible Joanie Madden on flutes and whistles, Cherish the Ladies has grown from a one-time concert concept to an Irish traditional music sensation, and is now among the most sought-after Irish-American groups in Celtic music.
With their unique blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, and captivating arrangements, this powerhouse group combines all the facets of Irish traditional culture and puts it forth in a gently humorous and sublimely entertaining package.
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" (Boston Globe); "An astonishing array of virtuosity" (Washington Post); and "Expands the annals of Irish music in America, the music is passionate, tender and rambunctious" (The New York Times).
For the past 28 years, Cherish the Ladies has proven itself worthy of these accolades, and in doing so has become one of the most engaging ensembles in the history of Irish music.
