Jackie Payne was already a Grammy-nominated veteran blues singer when he began performing with acclaimed blues guitarist Steve Edmonson. The two share a love for the blues and for the lost art of performance that makes each concert exciting and full of energy. Payne's live shows often match the fervor and intensity of a fire and brimstone gospel revival, while Edmonson's melodic guitar playing channels legends such as B.B. King, Jimmie Vaughan and T-Bone Walker. Learn More
Since its birth in 1996, Solas has been loudly proclaimed as the most popular, influential, and exciting Celtic band to ever emerge from the United States. Even before the release of its first Shanachie CD, the Boston Herald trumpeted the quartet as “the first truly great Irish band to arise from America,” and the Irish Echo ranked Solas among the “most exciting bands anywhere in the world.” Since then, the praise has only grown louder. The Philadelphia Inquirer said they make “mind-blowing Irish folk music, maybe the world’s best.” The New York Times praised their “unbridled vitality“, the Washington Post dubbed them one of the “world’s finest Celtic-folk ensembles” and the Austin American-Statesman called them “the standard by which contemporary Celtic groups are judged.”
