About The Band

Solas was formed by Seamus Egan in 1994 when he met with Winifred Horan (fiddle) and John Doyle (guitar) who would prove to be the initial foundation of the group over the coming years. The trio of artists took their music to Irish bars all around New York City until they met up with the the last two pieces of the Solas puzzle: John Williams (accordion) and Karan Casey (vocals). In less than a year the group was signed to a label and began work on their debut album which would be released in 1996. The album was a huge success, and with help from radio programs the group became a well known musical force on the scene. Their follow up album, "Sunny Spells and Scattered Showers", won critical praise from critics and audiences alike, cementing their spot as the go-to Celtic folk group in the country. While the lineup has changed a fair bit throughout the years, Seamus Egan and Winifred Horan still reside in the group, keeping their core sound and feel alive nonetheless.


Breakthrough Album

Ever since the release of their self-titled debut album, Solas has been one of the most talented and popular Celtic folk groups in the entire United States. This was mostly due to the amazing performances, song writing, instrumentation, and solid production values that went into every single track on their debut album, but the group was also aided by appearing on popular radio programs. It wasn't long after the made appearances on the radio programs A Prairie Home Companion as well as Mountain Stage that Solas received massive public attention, making them a hot commodity on the live music scene and a huge draw for fans of their particular style of music. They truly rose through the ranks of popularity with a sudden speed that many artists try to attain, and Solas continues to raise the expectations that their fans have of them through their music with every subsequent show and release.


Solas Trivia

While Solas are most well known for their talented musical inclinations towards traditional Irish folk music, there was a point when the group was leaning towards more of a pop oriented feel with their music. Founding member Seamus Egan had been writing new material for their fourth album, but was beginning to move away from the Irish and Celtic feel that they were known for and started to experiment with music that had more of a pop sensibility than anything else. It's worth noting that while experimenting with new styles of music that Seamus had written a song called "I Will Remember You" for a movie soundtrack, with the song later becoming a hit single for Sarah Mclachlan. In fact, by the late 90's and with their fourth album, "The Hour Before Dawn", the group had been experimenting with pop melodies and a new age feel. While they have reverted back to their popular Irish Folk style of music, the group continues to push itself and the boundaries of Celtic music as much as they can will still retaining their core Irish feeling. With most of their music they don't stray too far into foreign territories, but every now and then you can find a bit of a country folk vibe coming off from their music. But no matter what style Solas decides to incorporate into their growing music, they never fail to give the listener a great time.


Fan Experience

There's no denying the fun and exhilarating atmosphere that has become one of the many reasons that Solas has become such a sensation. With the group touring all across the country as often as possible for their growing legions of fans, one might expect them to slow down or take it easy at a show every once in a while. But that is never the case for this Irish folk band, as they bring their A game to each and every one of their shows that they perform. And while listening to the group from home or in your car is a great way to hear some fantastic music, there's no competition when it comes to seeing them perform live! There's simply an energy and on-stage presence that accompanies Solas at their shows that continues to draw in music loving people from all over to be a part of the audience.
