Solas is the quintessential Irish-American band, blending folk and country melodies, blues, jazz and world beat into stylized Celtic music. They intersperse the Irish genre with contemporary compositions and seasoned musicianship, showcasing everything from fiddles, flutes and accordions to a concertina and a bodhran. The evening features a lineup of greatest hits, as well as the standalone act, Shamrock City, a multimedia show with remarkable photos and stories from the turn-of-the-century copper boomtown, Butte, Montana.
“For instrumental firepower and creative heft, there’s no beating Solas.”
~ San Francisco Chronicle
“If one band in the world has picked up the torch of traditional Irish music and run with it further
than almost any group since the Chieftains, it’s Solas.” ~ Portland Tribune
