Cherish the Ladies is a 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. Since their beginning, they have toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics, and recorded 17 outstanding albums, including a live recording, “An Irish Homecoming,” which won an Emmy. Under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, who was named by The Irish Voice newspaper as one of the Top 25 most influential Irish Americans of the past quarter century, Cherish the Ladies has won recognition as the BBC’s Best Musical Group of the Year and Top North American Celtic Group at the Irish Music Awards. www.cherishtheladies.com
