Christmas with Cherish the Ladies at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center Dec. 8
Concert tickets for Cherish the Ladies are $25.
Cherish The Ladies, one of the most engaging and successful ensembles in the history of Celtic music, celebrate the holidays with a spirited performance filled with classic Christmas carols intermingled with beautiful Celtic instrumentals, outstanding vocals harmonies and spectacular step dancing at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8. Doors open at 3 p.m.
Group leader and raconteur Joanie Madden, an All-Ireland champion flute and whistle player, has assembled a top-notch ensemble guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit that includes; Mary Coogan (guitar), Mirella Murray (accordion), Nollaig Casey (fiddle), Kathleen Boyle (piano, harmony vocals), Kate Purcell (vocals, guitar), Don Stiffe (vocals, guitar), David Geaney (five times world champion stepdancer) and Seámus O’Flatharta (vocals, harp, stepdance).
The Washington Post praises their ‘astonishing array of virtuosity’, and the Boston Globe proclaimed, “It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do!” These ladies embrace the timeless gift of music that was passed down to them through the generations from their fathers. ‘It was the greatest gift they could give us,’ says bandleader Joanie Madden. ‘We’re carrying on the music and legacy of our fathers.’
As their reputation and admiration from both fans and critics alike continues to grow, Cherish The Ladies blazes forward into another decade of music making and embarks on another season of bringing Christmas joy for the whole family to enjoy.
