    One of the most popular, influential, and exciting Celtic bands, Solas presents Shamrock City, a multimedia show of original music with remarkable photos and tales from turn-of-the-century copper boomtown Butte, MT. Inspired by a family story of immigration, mining, and murder, Solas and bandleader Seamus Egan take you on the unforgettable journey of his great-great-uncle Michael Conway's life in Ireland and mysterious death in America. Solas will present Shamrock City for the first half of the concert, followed by an additional set of Solas favorites.

    "Solas populates their newly minted, wily western landscape with gamblers, drinkers, and women . . . a richly textured musical backdrop that could be a first cousin once removed of Springsteen’s The Seeger Sessions."—Siobhan Long, The Irish Times
