News from Joanie Madden & Cherish The Ladies

Hello Cherish Fans! We hope you are enjoying your summer!  We're getting ready to embark on our summer tour and we wanted to give you a little update with our current touring schedule and our comings and goings. 


We're really thrilled to have our first American Public Television Special continuing to air across North America.  "An Irish Homecoming," features the incredible singing of Maura O'Connell, a 12 piece string section, seven spectacular dancers and Anna Colliton on bodhran.  It's exclusive to PBS, but is being offered as a special product available to our mailing list.  It's available as a DVD or CD and the program was recorded in front of a live audience at beautiful Bucknell University in Pennsylvania.  To order, contact  CD's are $15 and DVD's are $20.
