Nashville, TN (August 26 2008) - In a manner befitting their name (a Gaelic word meaning "light"), Solas burst onto the Irish music scene over a decade ago and almost instantly became a beacon - an incandescent ensemble that found contemporary relevance in timeless traditions without ever stooping to crossover clichés. 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.


 


For Love and Laughter breaks fresh ground in duets with Canada’s folk phenoms The Dukhs and an inspired rendition of Rickie Lee Jones’s "Sailor Song", while it offers the imaginative reinterpretations of traditional material that Solas has been playing to the delight of their fans worldwide.
