The Celtic powerhouse group Cherish the Ladies will return to BlackRock Center for the Arts for two performances on Sunday, February 28 at 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Cherish the Ladies performed to sold-out crowds at BlackRock in the 2014-15 season, and tickets to this early St. Patrick’s Day performance are going fast, according to BlackRock.
With their unique spectacular blend of virtuosi instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing, Cherish the Ladies combines all the facets of Irish traditional culture and puts it forth in an immensely humorous and entertaining package.
Under the leadership of the dynamic and irrepressible Joanie Madden on flutes and whistles, Cherish the Ladies has grown from a one-time concert concept to an Irish traditional music sensation. The Ladies have recorded fifteen highly acclaimed albums which were all released to rave reviews. The troupe initially won recognition as the first all-women traditional music and dance ensemble, but soon established themselves as musicians and performers without peer. Over the years The Ladies have won many thousands of fans of their music, and are the most successful and sought after Irish-American group in Celtic music.
Tickets to see Cherish the Ladies perform are $18 - $50 and are on sale in person, over the phone by calling 240-912-1058, or online at blackrockcenter.org.
