Cherish the Ladies play the Kate
Let’s hear it for the Ladies! Cherish the Ladies, that is. The group began in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene.
Cherish the Ladies has moved to the forefront of that music genre, with performances at the White House and the Olympics and on a national public television special.
The ensemble is led by Joanie Madden, who plays flute and whistle, and its shows — including the one on March 1 at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center — are known for offering up superb vocals, musicianship, and step dancing.
Cherish the Ladies, 7:30 p.m. March 1, Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, 300 Main St., Old Saybrook; $47; (860) 510-0453.
