“It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do,” says the Boston Globe speaking of Cherish the Ladies, the long-running, Grammy-nominated, Irish-American super group that 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, recorded 17 outstanding albums including a live recording, “An Irish Homecoming,” which was simultaneously videotaped for a Public Television Special that aired across America and won an Emmy.
Westward The Light is a vessel that brings together an expansive knowledge of Scottish folk music and culture, creating a new expression of an age-old sound. On fiddle, viola, vocals, piano, and guitar, the quartet's music is reflective of upbringings immersed in the nature and landscapes of Scotland. The band formed as a result of years of collaboration in a range of settings, and features Charlie Grey, Sally Simpson, Owen Sinclair and Joseph Peach. 2020 marked the release of their debut album, with the hotly anticipated release coming at the start of the band's third year together.
