Guthrie-Brothers
Jan. 30
08:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Saturday, January 30, 2016, Sharp Theater, 8 P.M.

The Guthrie Brothers share a lot of history with The Everly Brothers. Like their idols – Don and Phil Everly, Jeb and Jock Guthrie have Kentucky roots, grew up in the Midwest and discovered at an early age their perfect singing harmonies. “Everything Everly” is a labor of love for the Guthries. Jeb and Jock perform this tribute with startling authenticity and engage audiences with lots of humor and history along the way.

The Guthries’ original music received national attention with the release of their self-titled, debut album on a Nashville label. The album garnered extensive airplay on both Americana and country radio stations, as well as rave reviews such as “well-written, heartfelt lyrics and wonderful harmonies – a welcome addition to [the] airwaves” – Billboard Magazine. Join us for a stellar evening of Everly Brothers hits that you will sing along to.

Sunday, March 6, 2016, Sharp Theater, 3 P.M.

When describing Cherish the Ladies, the critics say it best: ”It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do” – the Boston Globe; “An astonishing array of virtuosity” – the Washington Post; “Expands the annals of Irish music in America, the music is passionate, tender and rambunctious” – The New York Times. For the past 29 years, Cherish the Ladies has proven itself worthy to live up to these accolades and in doing so has become one of the most engaging ensembles in the history of Irish music.

Under the leadership of the dynamic and irrepressible Joanie Madden on flutes and whistles, recently named one of the top 25 most influential Irish Americans of the past quarter century, it has grown from a one-time concert concept to an Irish traditional music sensation and is the most successful and sought after Irish-American group in Celtic music.
