Irish Céilí: Social Irish Dance Class 
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 | 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Learn reels, slip jigs, and slides in a relaxed and friendly environment. Hosted in conjunction with the Cherish The Ladies’ performance at The Barns, this is your chance to become part of the living tradition of Irish dance! Open to ages 12 and older of all skill levels.

  • Hailed by The Boston Globe as “a leading group in the Irish traditional world,” the ensemble of Cherish The Ladies blends bravura musicianship, dynamic step dancing, and an inimitable stage presence to create an explosively entertaining experience.
  • Folklorist and musician Mick Moloney first pitched Cherish The Ladies in 1985 as a concert concept aimed at showcasing a female presence in the male-dominated Irish music scene. The group’s extraordinary technique swiftly earned The Ladies their place as an international sensation in their own right.
  • Whistle and flute player Joanie Madden has led the band of Cherish The Ladies since its creation. Mary Coogan (guitar, mandolin, banjo), Mirella Murray (accordion), Gráinne Murphy (whistle, bodhrán), and Kathleen Boyle (piano, accordion) round out the quintet.
    The group’s impressive list of honors includes Glasgow Royal Concert Hall’s International Group of the Year Award and the title of BBC’s Best Musical Group of the Year.
  • The Ladies have collaborated with James Taylor, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, and many others, including numerous symphony orchestras. They will also be performing on the Folk’N Irish Cruise in early February.
