In 1985 Cherish the Ladies began as a one-time concert series featuring the first and only all-women traditional Irish band. Originally conceived by folklorist/musician Mick Moloney, the group was created to highlight talented female Irish-American musicians in a time when the face Celtic music was primarily male. Cherish the Ladies soon began to garner attention for their unrivaled skill as musicians and performers. The one-time concert series has since grown into literally the most successful and sought-after Irish-American group in Celtic music. Over their 25 year history, Cherish the Ladies have toured the globe, performing with the world’s greatest symphonies and sharing the stage with the likes of James Taylor, Joan Baez, Emmy Lou Harris, The Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem, and The Chieftains. Their albums have consistently received the highest critical acclaim, including a Grammy nomination for their Celtic Album collaboration with the Boston Pops Symphony. As a new year begins, the band is more popular than ever and continues to bring engaging performances and captivating Celtic music wherever they go.
