“The finest Celtic ensemble this country has ever produced...combines a deep empathy for the wild grace of traditional music with a savvy understanding of modern arrangement, creating a remarkably contemporary and timeless sound that led them immediately to Celtic superstardom...uniquely fluid, warmly melodic and robust” —The Boston Globe
Solas (Seamus Egan, Winifred Horan, Mick McAuley, Deirdre Scanlan, Eamon McElholm) with founding members Karan Casey, John Doyle and John Williams, plus Donal Clancy and special guests Antje Duvekot, Chico Huff, Ben Wittman, John Anthony and Michael Aharon. Since forming in 1996, Solas (meaning “light” in Gaelic) has been widely proclaimed as the most popular, influential, and exciting Celtic band to ever emerge from the United States. Even before the release of their self-titled debut, The Boston Herald trumpeted Solas as “the first truly great Irish band to arise from America” while The Irish Echo ranked Solas among “the most exciting bands anywhere in the world.”
Solas celebrated their 10 year anniversary with a spectacular reunion concert that featured all the band’s current and past members. The concert was filmed in front of a live, hometown audience in Philadelphia, PA on September 13th, 2005 and the resulting DVD performance captures all the magic of this one time event. The DVD includes a full hour, 45 minute concert recorded in stereo and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound together with over 30 minutes of live performance extras, interviews, an extensive photo gallery of individual and band photos and behind the scene views of the rehearsals.
