Due to popular demand The Oriel Centre Dundalk Gaol welcome back CHERISH THE LADIES who are celebrating their New Album Launch ”Heart of the Home”
Cherish The Ladies is an Irish traditional music and dance troupe based in America, which is superbly lead under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden.
”It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do,” The Boston Globe
“Superbly led by the larger than life Joanie Madden on whistles, flute, harmony vocals and introductions.These ladies dusted the perceived cobwebs off traditional music by presenting it in a new light, with a mixture of first class ‘kick-ass’ playing, sensational singing, dynamic dancing and infectious humour, that packaged it and sent it into the modern world – without ever losing respect for the musical roots. This homely approach, with great stage banter, ensured not only an entertaining night but also that never before has ‘trad’ been so enjoyable” The Belfast Telegraph, UK
“For Cherish the Ladies, named after a popular Irish traditional jig, the jig is not up. Madden’s tenacious but tactful helming of the ensemble should be studied in business schools. It should also be scrutinized in music schools. Cherish the Ladies have shown that Irish traditional music from America remains a vibrant, diasporic marvel” Earle Hitchner The Irish Echo
