For over a decade, Solas has been hailed as the leading Irish American super group. Through line-up changes and experiments with style and technology, the band has pushed the boundaries of - but never strayed too far from - their Irish roots.
Now, as Mairead Phelan, an exciting young singer from Kilkenny, steps up to lend her exquisite vocals to the existing line up of Seamus Egan (flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, whistle, guitar and bodhran), Winifred Horan (fiddle), Mick McAuley (accordion and concertina) and Eamon McElholm (guitar and keyboards), the band heads into their second decade of playing tight, fiery Irish music with For Love and Laughter.
The new material breaks fresh ground in duets with Canada’s folk phenoms The Dukhs, and an inspired rendition of Rickie Lee Jones’ "Sailor Song" while offering the imaginative reinterpretations of traditional material that Solas has been playing to the delight of their fans worldwide.
