Cherish The Ladies return to the Weinberg Center at 3 p.m. on March 20 with their unique combination of Celtic instrumentation, beautiful harmonies and step dancing.

Cherish the Ladies are a Grammy-nominated Irish-American supergroup that formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of extraordinary women in what was a male-dominated Irish music scene.

Over the past three decades, they’ve toured the world, performed at the White House and the Olympics, and recorded 17 critically acclaimed albums, including their latest album, “Heart of the Home.”

The group is under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, named by The Irish Voice Newspaper as one of the 25 most influential Irish Americans of the last quarter century.

They were recognized as the best musical group of the year by the BBC and named the best North American Celtic group at the Irish Music Awards. They have collaborated with musicians such as The Boston Pops, The Clancy Brothers, the Chieftains, Vince Gill, Nanci Griffith, Pete Seeger, Don Henley, Arlo Guthrie and Maura O’Connell, as well as being the featured soloist with over 280 nights of symphony orchestras.

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased online at weinbergcenter.org, by calling the box office at 301-600-2828, or in person at 20 W. Patrick St., Frederick. Discounts are available for students, children, military, and seniors.
