Irish-American band Solas releases new CD with concert

By From page A11 | March 01, 2013

Solas, a quintessential Irish-American band, returns to The Palms Playhouse for a CD release concert at 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $20.

The band will be celebrating the release of their new album “Shamrock City” with a special multi-media concert. “Shamrock City” explores the true story of bandleader Seamus Egan’s great-great-uncle Michael Conroy who emigrated from Ireland to work in the copper mines of Butte, Mont. in 1910, and died just six years later at the age of 25 from a blow to the head. “Shamrock City” uses Conway’s story to explore both his specific story as well as to illuminate life of immigrants during the Industrial Revolution; in concert, this is done with music and segments of archival images, film, and music.

Tickets for Solas’ CD release show at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St., are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, call 530-795-1825, or visit palmsplayhouse.com and solasmusic.com.
