Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Now in its 12th year, Cherish the Ladies is the nation's premiere women's traditional Celtic group. AT HOME reunites the Ladies with their musical roots: the dads, grandpas, uncles, and cousins who infused their lives with song. Fifteen close relatives sit in with the gals, including Bobby and Liam Clancy of Clancy Brothers fame, and father and uncle to Ladies' vocalist Aiofe Clancy. You'll hear several medleys of brisk reels, jigs, and hornpipes where the players fire up the music to make the step dancers' feet fly, as onlookers whistle and taunt them along. More sentimental are the vocals mostly laments of lost love, though "Matt Hyland" ends happily enough, sung ...

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Now in its 12th year, Cherish the Ladies is the nation's premiere women's traditional Celtic group. AT HOME reunites the Ladies with their musical roots: the dads, grandpas, uncles, and cousins who infused their lives with song. Fifteen close relatives sit in with the gals, including Bobby and Liam Clancy of Clancy Brothers fame, and father and uncle to Ladies' vocalist Aiofe Clancy. You'll hear several medleys of brisk reels, jigs, and hornpipes where the players fire up the music to make the step dancers' feet fly, as onlookers whistle and taunt them along. More sentimental are the vocals mostly laments of lost love, though "Matt Hyland" ends happily enough, sung eloquently by Aiofe Clancy; on "John of Dreams," she's joined by four members of the Clancy clan. The most moving ballad -- "The Waves of Kilkee," composed by whistle player Joanie Madden and producer Brian Keane -- can't help but conjure green hills and rough coastlines. Fiddler and former CTL member Eileen Ivers CROSSING THE BRIDGE rejoins the group on this album, making for a most joyous reunion.
All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
It's pretty rare that any good comes of signing a traditional Celtic band to a major record label. In this case, the results have been mixed but generally good. The second Cherish the Ladies album on RCA has family participation as its theme, and for the most part it works out quite well: guests include the Clancy Brothers father and uncle of Cherish the Ladies singer Aiofe Clancy, accordion player Jim Coogan father of guitarist and banjo player Mary Coogan, and flutist Seamus Egan brother of fiddler Siobhan Egan. There are several very fine reel and jig sets and a lovely rendition of the traditional song "Matt Hyland," sung beautifully by Aiofe Clancy. And there's also a nice performance of "John of Dreams," sung here by various members of the Clancy family. But the inclusion of Dan Fogelberg's "The Leader of the Band" sounds like a label executive's idea, and there's a tameness to the overall sound that is a bit disappointing. Still, this album will probably appeal to all but the snobbiest Celtic music fans.

    Great Music & Great Fun

    After attending a concert by this group this last Saturday night, I am still deeply under their enchantment! However, I've been a fan of their music for a short while and hope I can comment briefly without sounding too greatly besotted. Their music is beautiful and the tightly knit playing makes it so. Much like in jazz music, a good Celtic combo should be able to play off one another...and these women do so admirably. The wealth of talent in this group is wonderful as well. As is the wealth of spirit, fun, and enthusiasm. Not to be missed! If something on this album doesn't stir you, you'd better check yourself for a pulse!

    A Feeling of Family

    This albumn provides a feeling of family that has been missing in their other albumns. The Waves of Kilkee, The Leader of the Band and John of Dreams alone make this albumn worth owning. The other cuts are just added spice. Well worth adding to your collection.
