Celtic Connections 2020

Incredibly, given the evergreen artistry and joie de vivre of their performances, January 2020 marks a full 35 years since Cherish the Ladies first foregathered in New York, when musician and folklorist Mick Moloney staged a showcase of female Irish-American talent. (It’s also 25 years since the band’s debut on this very stage, at the second-ever Celtic Connections.) Boasting such illustrious alumnae as Eileen Ivers, Liz Carroll, Winifred Horan and Liz Knowles, today’s line-up features co-founders Joanie Madden and Mary Coogan with Nollaig Casey, Mirella Murray and Kathleen Boyle. Arriving fresh from a five-date Irish tour, for this exclusive Scottish appearance, the Ladies are sure to be optimally warmed up for an even bigger Glasgow love-in than usual. Their bumper birthday entourage includes guest vocalists Kate Purcell, Heidi Talbot, John Morrison and Cathie Ryan, the formidable rhythm section of Trevor Hutchinson, Peter McKinney and Donnchadh Gough, several local musical pals and the customary squad of champion stepdancers.
