Album Notes
On Cherish the Ladies staggering seventeenth recording, “Heart of the Home”, the Ladies traveled back to their ancestral homeland in rural Co. Clare, drawing inspiration from the ancient history and rugged landscape of the Wild Atlantic Way. The album is a wonderful blend of the old and the new featuring lively dance music, heart wrenching slow airs and stellar singing from leading luminary vocalists in Irish Music.

Throughout the recording, the ladies take centuries-old music that has been passed down from generation to generation and make it their own with tasteful new arrangements and talented renditions. Scattered throughout are catchy newly composed melodies from band members that are certain to become traditional staples in their own right.

Some of the finest voices that Ireland has to offer are featured as special featured artists on Heart Of The Home. Ireland’s top entertainer, Nathan Carter, performs the title track; Co. Clare songstress Kate Purcell sings “Glenties”, while Galway balladeer Don Stiffe performs “Shadow Of A Singer And His Song”. Newfoundland’s Ennis Sisters join with “Ambletown” and rising star, Molly O’Riordan offers a beautiful version of “The Little Thatched Cabin”. Each song has been carefully selected and showcases the musicality and versatility of this outstanding ensemble that includes Joanie Madden (New York, flute, whistles, harmony vocals), Mary Coogan (New York, guitar, banjo, mandolin) Mirella Murray (County Galway, accordion), Kathleen Boyle (Glasgow, piano, harmony vocals) and Nollaig Casey (County Cork, fiddle). Adding magic are special guest musicians Trevor Hutchinson and Peter McKinney from the Waterboys as well as Bodhrán ace, Donnchadh Gough.

Joanie Madden helped form the all-female group in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of extraordinary women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene and for more than three decades this immensely talented group has performed all over the world and have been the invited guest artists at The White House and the Olympics. The New York Times calls their music “passionate, tender, and rambunctious,” and the Washington Post praises their “astonishing array of virtuosity.” They’ve won recognition as the BBC’s Best Musical Group of the Year and even have a street named after them in the Bronx, Joanie Madden and Cherish the Ladies! They’ve collaborated with such musicians as The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, The Boston Pops, Vince Gill, Nanci Griffith, Pete Seeger, Don Henley, Arlo Guthrie and Maura O’Connell as well as being the featured soloist for 300 nights of symphony orchestras.
