Biography

There is more than one artist with this name, an Irish folk band as well as a French rock band:

1. Irish jigs abound, as well as some subtle influences from modern rock and jazz. They have been hailed as the greatest folk band in the world today. Formed in 1996, the band’s original lineup consisted of Seamus Egan (flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, tin whistle/low whistle, guitar, bodhrán), Winifred Horan (fiddle), John Doyle (guitar), John Williams (accordian), and Karan Casey (lead vocals). Over the years, only Egan and Horan have stayed with the band. The current members are now Egan, Horan, Deidre Scanlan (lead vocals), Eamon McElholm (guitar), and Mick McAuley (button accordion/piano accordion, concertina, low whistle, backing vocals).

2. Solas is also the name of a French rock band. The band has so far released one album with the title ‘Viens Sur Moi’ in 2006.

    Nah I disagree soaree, "Maire Mhilis Bhrea" would be like 1/4 without her vocals.. and that´s not the only exception.

    I love the instrumental part of this band, but I sincerely believe they would not be half as good without the female vocal performed by Karan. her voice haunts me at times. if you know what I mean, join http://www.last.fm/group/SUCKERS+for+Female+Vocalists

    I heard a song on DIRECTV XM radio and it was titled "It's Still Raining" and I loved it, but I don't see it here... Could it actually be called something else? Thanks! New Solas Fan

    New album is pretty good. I don't really care for the vocals to be honest, but instrumentally its fantastic.
