Cherish the Ladies returns to Regis

March 19, 2008

Cherish the Ladies is back at Regis College and tickets are going fast! The group is performing on Sunday, March 30, at 2 p.m., in the Fine Arts Center.

Taking its name from the name of a traditional Irish jig, the group—which offers both singing and step dancing—initially won recognition as the first and only all-women traditional Irish band.

It has grown from a one-time concert concept to an Irish traditional music sensation, and one of the most successful and sought-after Irish-American groups in Celtic music. Cherish the Ladies has been chosen Best Musical Group of the Year by the BBC, Top 100 Irish Americans by Irish America Magazine, Entertainment Group of the Year by the Irish Voice Newspaper, selected as the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall's International Group of the Year in Scotland and voted the Top North American Celtic act by NPR Radio’s “Thistle and Shamrock.”

The women in Cherish the Ladies have shared the stage with such noted entertainers as James Taylor, Joan Baez and Emmy Lou Harris to name a few. At the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, they were chosen to represent Irish music and culture at the Official Cultural Olympiad.

The women will enchant audiences next at Regis College. Cherish the Ladies is performing on Sunday, March 30, at 2 p.m., in the Eleanor Welch Casey Theatre, Fine Arts Center, Regis College, 235 Wellesley St., Weston. Tickets are $25 general public; $20 seniors; $15 children under 12. General seating. For more information, call 781-768-7070.
