TRADITIONAL IRISH MUSIC IS FOCUS OF ST. PATRICK’S DAY BRIGHT STAR EVENT AT VITERBO
LA CROSSE, Wis.—One of the foremost Irish traditional music groups in the world is making St. Patrick’s Day in La Crosse something special during a Bright Star Season performance by Cherish the Ladies at Viterbo University’s Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Monday, March 17.
Cherish the Ladies, named after an Irish jig, is an Irish music sensation and literally the most successful and sought after Irish-American group in Celtic music history. With their unique blend of virtuosi instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing, this powerhouse group combines all the facets of Irish traditional culture and presents it in an immensely humorous and entertaining package.
Once the first and only all-women traditional Irish band, Cherish the Ladies has earned respect worldwide for their talents. Cherish the Ladies have recorded seven highly acclaimed albums and made numerous television and radio appearances. These award-winning ladies have shared the stage with such noted artists as James Taylor, Joan Baez, Emmy Lou Harris, The Clancy Brothers, and dozens of symphony orchestras.
Cherish the Ladies is sponsored by James G. Birnbaum and Ross A. Seymour, Attorneys-at-Law and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin.
