A major new presence in Celtic music, Solas (Gaelic for "light) creates a sound timelesly traditional and yet utterly new. No Irish band in recent memory has generated this much excitement by its very founding. With vocalist Karan Casey, guitarist John Doyle, multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan, fiddler Winifred Horan and button accordion-concertina player John Williams, young masters all, Solas brings the riches of Irish traditional music to the fore without sacrificing any of the music's sublime grace or melodic brilliance.

"there's no better Irish band in America" -- Irish Echo

"Combining virtuosity and versatility, Solas already seems poised to join the elite of Irish traditional bands active today, including the Chieftains and Altan." -- Wall Street Journal
