Cathie Ryan

Although born in Detroit, MI, singer Cathie Ryan is the daughter of Irish immigrants. Picking up her love of music from her family (her father is a tenor vocalist, while her grandmother was a fiddler and singer), Ryan would often visit relatives in Ireland, and attended Gaelic league sessions. After moving to New York, Ryan began studying with renowned sean-nós singer Joe Heaney, and in 1987, joined the Irish traditional women's ensemble, Cherish the Ladies (her talents were immediately felt in the group as she penned the title song to the group's second release, 1992's The Back Door, as a tribute to Irish immigrants), remaining a member for seven years. After leaving Cherish the Ladies in 1995, Ryan launched a solo career, signing with the Shanachie label, who issued her self-titled solo debut in 1997, following it up with such further releases as The Music of What Happens in 1998, and Somewhere Along the Road in 2001. Ryan has enjoyed numerous accolades during her career, including being named Irish Female Vocalist of the Decade by the Irish American News in Chicago, while the New York Daily News said Ryan is "firmly in the upper echelons of Irish music singers." In addition to her singing career, Ryan is one of the hosts of pledge programming on New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut's PBS, WNET, Channel 13, as well as co-leading tours to mythological sites in Ireland for the New York Center for Jungian Studies. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Cathie puts on a great show with her touring group. While her voice is marvelous, the stories and talk between numbers endears the audience even more. You can't help feeling like you've made a new friend, as she sings her song of parting at the end of the show.
such a voice...take s me away...

Celtic music moves me closer to my heritage... It draws me to an angelic realm of peace comfort and strength! Our God draws us to Him, our Home!
Where is Sinead O'Conner? I created this station and only rwo of her songs!
Yet another beautiful Irish voice. The celtic native language is quite lovely. Thanks to all the Celts that bring us their beautiful music.

I had the privilege of taking a class with Cathie this last summer - a whole week of her lovely voice and awesome spirit.
My lovely wife, Cheryl and I had the pleasure of spending the evening with Cathie and several hundred other Irish music fans on St. Patrick's evening in Dayton, OH 2012. I cannot describe the joy she spreads during and after her performance. Her lads were great as well. They could visit our home for a glass any evening.
I had the honor of meeting this lovely woman in a music and education workshop. She is one of the sweetest most inspiring women I've met. She is so full of passion and truth. She helped me to see the beauty of a song's story. And what a wonderful voice!
