Award-winning Celtic group Cherish the Ladies coming to McCain March 4

Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016

 

 

MANHATTAN — Cherish the Ladies, an all-female supergroup that blends instrumental and vocal talents, will perform traditional Irish music just in time for St. Patrick's Day at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 4, in McCain Auditorium as part of the McCain Performance Series.

Named the Top North American Celtic Group by the Irish Music Awards, Cherish the Ladies takes its name from a traditional Irish jig. The group initially began in 1985 with a series of concerts celebrating the rise of female musicians in a once male-dominated scene. Initially winning recognition as the first all-women traditional music and dance ensemble, the members of Cherish the Ladies soon established themselves as musicians and performers, acquiring many thousands of fans with their music.

Tickets for Cherish the Ladies start at $10 plus applicable taxes and fees, and are available now at the McCain Auditorium box office, online at k-state.edu/mccain, or by calling 785-532-6428.
