Cathie Ryan

The New York Daily News recently stated that Cathie Ryan is "firmly in the upper echelons of Irish music singers." For the fans who have been following Cathie since her early days with Cherish the Ladies, this is proof of what they have known for years: that she is a major artistic talent, equally at home amid the deepest strains of the Irish tradition or the cutting edge of the contemporary songwriter movement. The daughter of Irish immigrants, Cathie was born in Detroit, Michigan. Her father was a tenor and very much in demand at the Gaelic League, where her family spent much of their time. As a child she often visited her grandparents in Ireland.
