Celebrating fifteen years of making music, Solas has become one of the most popular and exciting Celtic bands ever to emerge from America. In a manner befitting their name (meaning “light” in Gaelic), Solas has become a beacon— finding contemporary relevance in timeless tradition. From Woody Guthrie’s Pastures of Plenty, to Springsteen’s Ghost of Tom Joad, to traditional jigs and reels, Solas defines the path in the Celtic music world and makes continuous leaps to drive the genre forward.
With ten albums under their belt, Solas’ band leader Seamus Egan was inspired by his family history to create their latest album, Shamrock City, due for release in 2013. Shamrock City tells the story of Butte, MT, a mining town at the turn of the 20th century, as seen through the eyes of Seamus’ great-great uncle, Michael Conway, an Irish immigrant who died six years after sailing to America at the age of 25. Shamrock City seeks to not only uncover the life and young death of Conway, but to also illuminate life as an immigrant during the Industrial Revolution and create a more meaningful and open dialogue about many of the issues in today’s America.
