  • CHERISH THE LADIES - THE PORTUMNA WORKHOUSE / THE HURLING BOYS OF PORTUMNA

    5:52

    THE PORTUMNA WORKHOUSE / THE HURLING BOYS OF PORTUMNA
    FROM CHERISH THE LADIES ALBUM, HEART OF THE HOME

    Joanie Madden composed these two tunes about her Father Joe Madden’s hometown of Portumna in East Galway. The Portumna Workhouse is a structure built in 1852 by the English to house the starving destitute poor during the Great Famine and it was described as “the most feared and hated institution ever established in Ireland”. After visiting the centre following the redevelopment and witnessing the atrocious conditions in which the oppressed people were forced to endure, Joanie composed this march thinking of happier times for those unfortunate people who were able to escape its walls.

    The second tune in the medley was inspired by the 4000 year old Gaelic sport of hurling, an incredible intricate high energy game which is the fastest sport on grass. All of the men in Joanie's father's family were accomplished hurlers and for over a century Portumna has been renown for the amazing hurlers it has produced.
    Joanie's great-uncle Mick Kenny from Duniry was a legendary hurler who captained the Galway All-Ireland Champion Hurling team in 1923 and was also very active in the Portumna GAA. She composed the Hurling Boys of Portumna reel for all those mighty men who have brought tremendous glory to the town through sport.

  • Cherish the Ladies: The Old Man

    4:52

    A SPECIAL FATHERS DAY RECORDING!
    THE OLD MAN

    In honor of Father’s Day 2020, we recorded a song that is near and dear to our heart, Phil Coulter’s gorgeous song, “The Old Man”.

    This song is special and has touched the hearts of every member of CHERISH THE LADIES past and present. Looking back on our history we amazingly all come from talented fathers that gave us the greatest gift - their music - and we are honored to carry on their legacy.

    We want to extend our sincere thanks to the genius that is Phil Coulter and we so appreciate him giving us permission to put our own stamp on his classic song.

    Today we celebrate all those men we are fortunate to call Dad and to all the men who play an important role in our lives! Happy Father's Day!

    The Old Man
    Composed by Phil Coulter, Four Seasons Publishing

    The tears have all been shed now
    We’ve said our last goodbyes
    His souls been blessed
    He’s laid to rest
    And it’s now I feel alone
    He was more than just a father
    A teacher my best friend
    And He’ll still be heard
    In the tunes we shared
    When I play them on my own

    (chorus)
    I never will forget him
    For he made me what I am
    Though he may be gone
    Memories linger on
    And I miss him, the old man
    As a boy he’d take me walkin’
    By mountain field and stream
    And he showed me things
    Not known to kings
    And secret between him and me
    Like the colours on the pheasant
    As he rises in the dawn
    Or how to fish and make a wish
    Beside a fairy tree

    (chorus)
    I never will forget him
    For he made me what I am
    Though he may be gone
    Memories linger on
    And I miss him, the old man

    I thought he’d live forever
    He seemed so big and strong
    But the minutes fly
    And the years roll by
    For a father and a son
    And suddenly when it happened
    There was so much left unsaid
    No second chance
    To tell him thanks

    For everything he’s done

    Oh, I never will forget him
    For he made me what I am
    Though he may be gone
    Memories linger on
    God I miss him, the old man

    LYRICS - HEART OF THE HOME – ANDY M STEWART

    He still smiles when he recalls
    How the gold ring fit her finger
    And they made that moment linger
    That it's memory 'd be strong
    They had made a brand new start
    Found a whole new way of living
    Two voices joined together
    Singing no sad songs

    CHORUS
    When the hard times come around
    May you see them through together
    Let there be love and laughter
    In the heart of your home

    And In life’s darkest days
    While you sail through troubled waters
    Let there be love and laughter
    In the heart of your home

    Leaving there was always hard
    Leaving her was never easy
    With those memories to tease you
    Summer night's seemed winter's long
    But in his heart there was a song
    And the only sound worth hearing
    Two voices joined together
    Singing no sad songs

    CHORUS

    He still smiles when he recalls
    How they counted little fingers
    And their gratitude still lingers
    That the boy was born strong
    They had made a brand new life
    Found a whole new way of living
    Three voices joined together
    Singing no sad songs

Cherish the Ladies has remained a true Super Group and is busy touring and recording at this time.On their current tour, summer and fall of 2011, they are featuring The Black Family with Mary Black as guest artists. They also have a fantastic music cruise planned. Check it out,

    Siobhan Egan (fiddle, bodhran)

    Carrigdhoun was originally called The Lament of the Irish Maiden and was written by Denny Lane from Cork. It is a political song telling of the flight from Ireland of Sarsfield's Wild Geese in 1691. The tune for Carrigdhoun inspired the Percy French song, The Mountains of Mourne.

    Carrigdhoun Lyrics, Song by Denny Lane:

    The heath was green on Carrigdhoun.
    Bright shone the sun o'er Ard-na-Lee
    The dark green trees bent trembling down
    To kiss the slumbering Own na Buidhe.
    That happy day -- 'twas but last May --
    'Tis like a dream to me,
    When Donal swore, aye o'er and o'er,
    We'd part no more a stór mo chroidhe.

    On Carrigdhoun the heath is brown.
    The clouds are dark o'er Ard-na-Lee,
    And many a stream comes rushing down
    To swell the angry Owen na Buidhe.
    The moaning blast is sweeping past
    Through many a leafless tree,
    And I'm alone, for he is gone,
    My hawk has flown, ochone mo chroidhe.

    Soft April showers and bright May flowers
    Will bring the summer back again,
    But will they bring me back the hours
    I spent with my brave Donal then?
    There's but a chance. he's gone to France
    To wear the Fleur-de-Lis.
    But I'll follow you, my Donal Dhu,
    For still I'm true to you mo chroidhe.

    a piece by (I want to say) the Celtic band 'Cherish the Ladies'. It's from the - Green Linnet Records 20th Anniversary Collection - which I believe was released ~ 2002.

    -- The images are included merely for Image fill. Tho I personally think that (the model) Holly Sampson is not hard on the eyes at all.. I'm not trying in any way to associate her with the talented musicians of Cherish the Ladies. I'll put it this way: as far as images went, Holly got drafted. May we all survive. Also, It's a delightful reel.

    Lyrics:
    SHADOW OF A SINGER AND HIS SONG

    Let me take you back in time, to the spring of ‘69
    Eighteen summers I had seen and youth was in its prime
    School I’ve never seemed to do, I thought I’d sing a song or two
    So I said goodbye to learning and I left it all behind

    I bought myself an old guitar, dreamed I’d be a superstar
    Signed up with an agent and he made my dreams come true
    I was swimming with the tide, people knew me nationwide
    Far off hills were always were green and skies were always blue

    Chorus
    Sailing on my ship of dreams
    I thought the sun was rising just for me
    Still, I often thought of closing all the doors
    But the minstrel man would always long for more
    And a shadow of a singer and his song
    Still follows me….

    Agents promised me rose gardens, but soon the good times turned to hard ones
    Upon reflection I began to read between the lines
    Ten years singing for the people, from young and strong to old and feeble
    While he was making dollars, I was only making dimes

    Chorus

    Now sometimes when my heart is hurting
    I wish someone would pull the curtain
    Than I think of all the joy that’s down this long and winding road
    In the end it’s all worthwhile when I see a tear turn to a smile
    And the people giving back to me much more
    Than I am owed…

    Here’s the sixth monthly installment of The Phonograph Project video series, our take on a recording made in 1923 by the Chicago/New York piper Tom Ennis. His version of ‘Cherish the Ladies’ isn’t so different from the version of the tune popularized by Michael Coleman, but there’s some lovely piping turns in Ennis’ version that you don’t hear as often these days.

    The Phonograph Project is a running monthly video and tutorial series exploring Irish music recorded in America in the 1920s and 30s. Each month, we pick a 78 that was recorded exactly 100 years ago (or as close as we can get). We study the tunes and the style of the musician(s), record a video of us playing the tunes, and create a tutorial that teaches the tunes and captures the setting, style, and spirit of the music as we’ve interpreted it. We also record a second set of tunes every month that’s only available over on our Patreon page. In addition to all this, we release high-quality audio tracks of each of our sets for our subscribers, which means that we’re building a full-length album month by month.

    The Phonograph Project is hosted over on Patreon. There’s a bunch of content over there, including early access to our monthly videos, monthly bonus videos for subscribers, historical notes, and full-blown tutorials on the tunes on fiddle, flute, and uilleann pipes. Additionally, subscribers get a free copy of our 2019 album, The Glory Reel. The Phonograph Project has been running for six months now, which means that we’ve released twelve tracks and six tutorials, all of which are available immediately upon signing up!

    support through media sponsorship .

    It's endurance is a tribute to the energy and labour of it's workers. it's appropriate to acknowledge the voluntary organising committee, and also the many volunteer workers who take charge of doors, organise artist accommodation, look after publicity, liaise with artists, and numerous other things involved in making such an event possible year on year.Particular recognition for Jim Walsh, Chairman and someone who has been a vital cog in Festival organisation since that very first year, long-serving Festival Director William Hammy Hammond, and also Timmy the Brit McCarthy, the inspirational figure behind the Festival's inception, as well as it's original Director/Secretary.

    The Festival included 'T with the Maggies' whose members are some of Ireland's finest traditional singers featuring Moya Brennan of Clannad, Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill from the Bothy Band, Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill of Skara Brae and Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh of Altan. There is a celebration of the musical lives of two special people, Sean Ó Riada and Seamus Creagh. In honour of Seamus and Sean there are two unique concerts at the new Triskel Christchurch venue featuring a host of talented musicians.Other concerts will feature an international line up of iconic musicians including, Julie Felix, Sons of the Delta, Cherish the Ladies, Katell Keineg, Roy Bailey, the intercultural group Convergence Ensemble and Billy Sutton & Graham Wells who travelled from Newfoundland to play at the concert for Seamus Creagh.
