The Solas was formed in 1996 and since their inception, they have been declared as the most popular, influential, and exciting Celtic band to ever emerge from the United States. Moreover, even before the release of their debut album 'Shanachie,' the newspapers and critics loaded them with appreciation and since then the praise has only grown louder.

With their Combined virtuosity and versatility, they have joined the elite list of Irish traditional bands active today, including the Chieftains and Altan. But unlike the other groups, Solas originates not in Ireland but in the United States and features three Irish Americans and two Irish diasporas. The Solas sound today is anchored by founders Seamus Egan, who plays flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, whistle, guitar and bodhran, and fiddler Winifred Horan. They are two of the most respected and imitated musicians in the acoustic music scene. Mick McAuley from Kilkenny plays the accordion and concertina; Eamon McElholm from Tyrone plays the guitar and keyboards. Deirdre Scanlan is the band's latest vocal discovery and she has gorgeously filled the role carved out by the founding vocalist Karan Casey.

The Solas with their unique and distinct style has opened up new territories for Celtic Music. The band has staged their performance at all the major Celtic and folk festivals, including Philadelphia, Edmonton, the legendary National Folk Festival, and Milwaukee's Irish fest. They have also performed at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and the chamber music summer series at Steamboat Springs, Colorado besides playing at the Symphony Hall, Wolf Trap, the Ford Amphitheater, and Queens Hall in Edinburgh, Scotland. While being based in the New York City in its early years, the band has performed at the legendary Bottom Line folk club, in addition, they have also played at the coveted classical venues like Town Hall and Symphony Space.

Today the Solas are regarded as the most exciting band in the traditional Irish music scene. Seamus Egan and the Solas offer a compellingly original, strikingly contemporary view of traditional Celtic sound. Though the Solas can play the undiluted traditional Irish music in the best of its capacities, still their innovative minds are always experimenting and mixing the traditional and the contemporary musical muse. But what is most striking of the whole thing is the ease and naturalness of their blending. This internationally acclaimed supergroup has not only captured the hearts of Irish music fans, but fans all around the globe. Their musical blend of Celtic traditional, folk and country melodies, bluesy sometimes jazz-inspired improvisations and global rhythms never fails to capture the hearts of its listeners. The Solas have made a fanbase that includes the likes of Bela Fleck, Emmylou Harris and the much sought-after rap producer Timbaland who surprisingly sampled the band on his radio hit "All Yall."

Now the Solas are performing in your town and they are real heart stealers. So hurry, and book your tickets now online.
