Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style with Solas, loudly proclaimed as the most popular and exciting Celtic band to ever emerge from the United States! Lyrical song themes are conveyed through the soft vocals of Kilkenny-born Mairead Phelan and an energetic blend of flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, whistle, guitar, bodhran, fiddle, keyboard, accordion and concertina, making up the sound The Philadelphia Enquirer called, “mind-blowing Irish folk music!”
