The Clark Center for the Performing Arts is proud to present the most successful and sought-after Irish-American group in Celtic music – Cherish the Ladies on Friday, October 14, 2011 at 8pm.

Taking their name from the name of a traditional Irish jig, Cherish the Ladies initially won recognition as the first and only all-women traditional Irish band. In a relatively short time, they soon established themselves as musicians and performers without peer and have won many thousands of listeners and fans of their music.

With their unique spectacular blend of virtuosi instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements and stunning Irish step dancing, this powerhouse group combines all the facets of Irish traditional culture and puts it forth in an immensely humorous and entertaining package.

Cherish the Ladies have performed in venues around the world and have been voted the top Celtic act by NPR Radio’s “Thistle and Shamrock.” They have shared the stage with such noted entertainers as James Taylor, Joan Baez, Emmy Lou Harris, The Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem and The Chieftains.

Cherish the Ladies have appeared on numerious radio and television shows, have received multiple Grammy nominations and were even chosen to represent Irish music and culture at the Olympics.
