With 'Shamrock City', Irish-American supergroup Solas delivers a singular concept album delving into the gritty world of Irish immigrants toiling in the mines of Montana.A tour-de-force of Irish American music Immigration is in the news again, but in America the struggle faced by newcomers seeking a fresh start is woven into the nation's very fabric.

Featuring Solas founders Seamus Egan, (banjo, mandolin, low whistle, nylon string guitar), and Winifred Horan (fiddle), Mick McAuley (vocals, accordion, and guitar), Eamon McElholm (guitar, harmony vocals, electric bass, and keyboards), and making her recording debut with the band, Cork-born Niamh Varian-Barry (vocals and viola). Solas has been a leading force in traditional Irish music for the past two decades, with 10 acclaimed albums since the band's founding in 1994.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful stuff! 20 Mar 2013
By Cellartroll - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had the very good fortune to see the debut of this album performed live by Solas at The Historic Blairstown Theater in NJ. It was my introduction to this fine Irish band... and I had no idea what to expect. What I received was an incredibly moving, powerfully written, expertly played tribute to the Irish immigrant miners of Montana. With an impressive video accompaniment to boot! This CD is wonderful in its own right... but as a vehicle to recall the memories of that incredible performance, it is exceptional! I highly recommend listening to a CD, and/or seeing a Solas performance ASAP... either is a most enjoyable memorable experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing concert presentation, not the CD 3 Mar 2013
By madaboutmusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just saw Solas in Nevada City, CA, where they presented this new material. The first half of the show consisted (mostly) of Seamus describing his great-grandfather's experiences as a copper miner in Butte Montana, while historic photographs of that time and place were projected on a screen behind the band. After providing introductory background information, Seamus would introduce each successive song within the context of his grandfather's (very short) life. Along the way, he wove in his thoughts about the greater American immigrant experience and provided information about working conditions at the time and the struggles workers had to undergo to win minimal concessions regarding working conditions from the corporations. I felt the weaving together of the stories and the songs worked very well and the new material was very strong (from a songwriting perspective) and emotionally engaging. The second half of the show was given over to playing tunes not associated with Butte. As for the playing, it surpassed my expectations. I'd never experienced Solas live, although I do have their first live dvd, which I've watched countles times, as well as their first three cds. I was, to be honest, expecting to be disappointed by the absence of Karen Kasey and John Doyle, but in fact, the current vocalist Niamh Varian-Barry knocked me out. She is a powerful singer (contralto?) with great dynamics, who can muster more power and really belt it out in a way that previous Solas singers did not. John Doyle's replacement, guitarist Eamon McElholm, was very solid, if not quite as scintillating and vibrant as Doyle, who sets a ridiculously high standard. The core trio of Seamus Egan, Winifred Horan and Mick McCauley were magnificent, although I much prefer Egan when he's playing banjo or pipes-- his nylon string guitar playing does little for me and the timbre tends to get buried in the mix. Personally, Horan is my favorite Solas player and one of my favorite musicians, in any genre. The intensity, virtuosity, playfulness and overall sense of abandon that has always marked her playing were very much in evidence. This is not to say that the rest of the band were in any way slouches-- they all played masterfully-- I simply find Horan particularly captivating. This is a band that glorifies and at the same time, transcends the genre of Traditional Irish music and experiencing them in concert is to feel completely taken over-- bodily, mentally and spiritually-- and carried away on a blissful journey. If this is what you desire from music, then I highly recommend you see the band on their current tour. And yes, I will be buying this cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Recording 1 Jun 2013
By Stradkat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being a native Montanan, with several cousins residing in Butte, I was thrilled to finally get this recording. I attended a Solas concert in Seattle in 2012, and they played a few songs they were putting on this album, so I already knew what the quality would be like. Well worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Butte Montana and Good Story Telling 13 May 2013
By ram - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am very biased. I saw Solas 3 times over the last 3 years as this project emerged into an album. Each time they introduced new songs and new stories.
This an accomplished group who are wonderful live and on this CD.
I highly recommend the album to anyone who has a fondness for the Irish in America, the West, or just good Irish roots music. The singing and playing are terrific.
Go see Solas if you can, you won't be disappointed, and buy the album too.
