Cherish the Ladies: Celtic music by ‘super group’
Calling the Irish-American group Cherish the Ladies a “super group” is not really subjective wording; it’s the term for a group that was formed of successful solo performers. But it lets you know you’re in for a high level of popular or traditional tunes, which Cherish the Ladies delivers in the form of Celtic music.
The band, which began as a concert series in New York in January 1985, will perform in concert on Friday, August 3 in St. Agnes Church Hall in Milford, sponsored by the P.V. O’Donnell Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann chapter.
The concert is also a fund-raiser for the P.V. O’Donnell chapter, with proceeds going toward scholarships for young people interested in learning Irish traditional music and participating in national and international competition.
Under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, Cherish the Ladies creates an evening that presents the best of Irish traditional music and rapid-fire step dancing, resulting in a high-energy and entertaining show, say organizers. The group has played the White House and the Olympics and recorded 17 albums.
St. Agnes Church Hall, 400 Merwin Ave., Milford. Friday, Aug. 3, 7:30 p.m. Doors at 7. $20 in advance, $25 at door. 203-876-9973. . https://pvodonnellcce.brownpapertickets.com
