Dubbed “Irish America’s most influential band” by National Public Radio’s The Thistle and Shamrock, Solas takes elements of Celtic, Americana and folk music to create an elegant, masterful sound. The ensemble employs fresh and unexpected arrangements of age-old tunes, compelling originals, and covers as it defines a path for Celtic music and drives the genre forward. An incandescent band finding contemporary relevance in timeless traditions, without ever stooping to clichés, Solas embodies the new wave of Irish music that defies preconceived notions and brings traditional sounds to the front of the stage.
Formed in 1996, 2016 marked the 20th anniversary of Solas, but after recording twelve albums, winning numerous awards, and touring countless miles around the world, the band has decided that their current tour, ending this March 2017, will be their last for a while so that the band members can rest and pursue other projects.
