Ladies formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what
had been a male-dominated Irish music scene and has since toured the world,
played the White House and the Olympics, and recorded fifteen albums including
their latest, An Irish Homecoming, which in turn became an Emmy-nominated PBS
special. Under the leadership of all-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie
Madden, these ladies create an evening that includes a spectacular blend of
virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and
stunning step dancing. Theyve collaborated with musicians including The
Clancy Brothers, the Chieftains, Nanci Griffith, Don Henley and Pete Seeger.
The New York Times called their music passionate, tender and
rambunctious. www.imperialtheatre.nb.ca (506) 674-4100. Contact Phone: (506)
