Solas

TRAD AND BRASS AS SHAMROCK CITY COMES TO BBC ALBA

In this hour-long concert special, Julie Fowlis presents Solas, the foremost Irish-American band recording and touring in the US today. Bursting onto the Irish music scene fifteen years ago, Solas became an instant hit with audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Their seemingly effortless virtuosity and winning combination of traditional and contemporary music is a testament to their complete mastery of the form.

Ten albums in, Solas founder Seamus Egan was inspired by his family history to compose and record the Shamrock City album. The album and stage show tell the story of Butte, Montana, a mining town, as seen through the eyes of Seamus' great-great uncle, Michael Conway. In 1910 he sailed from Ireland to Butte to work in the copper mines. Six years later, aged just 25, he had been murdered.

Their only Scottish date is at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket during Celtic Connections. The band are joined onstage by legend Dick Gaughan and The Co-op Funeralcare Brass Band, a nod to the colliery bands from mining towns.

The stage show tells the story narrative through music, song and through the clever application of multi-media. The stories and lives of immigrants are never more relevant, being reflected prominently in the headlines of 2013.

Egan goes on to explain that Solas want to reach beyond the music by allowing fans to share their family histories during live dates. A film projected during the concert, Shamrock City, shows footage from Butte (a city in Montana), uncovering the life and young death of Conway and illuminating life as an immigrant during the Industrial Revolution.

The show might begin with the Shamrock City set, but on this, their fifteenth anniversary, Solas entertain a rapturous Glasgow audience with their extended repertoire. From original songs through jigs and reels and on to Woody Guthrie and Springsteen, the Solas brand combines tradition and contemporary innovation. The audience at the Old Fruitmarket have probably witnessed the most influential and exciting Celtic band to emerge from America.

Cuirm@Celtic: Solas – Shamrock City produced by Bees Nees Media, will be shown on BBC ALBA at 21.00 on Saturday 26 January and repeated on Sunday 27 January at 11pm.

CEÒL TRAD AGUS BRASS LE SGEULACHD SHAMROCK CITY AIR BBC ALBA

Ann am prògram uair a thìde, tha Julie Fowlis gu bhith a’ lìbhrigeadh cuirm-chiùil shònraichte bho Cheltic Connections nuair a nochdas còmhlan Èireannach-Aimeireaganach, Solas - aon de na prìomh còmhlan-ciùil a bhios a’ siubhal agus a’ clàradh ann an Ameireaga an-diugh.

Às dèidh dhaibh 10 clàr a thoirt a-mach, bha Seumas Egan, a thòisich an còmhlan, airson sgeulachd sònraichte teaghlaich innse agus thàinig clàr Shamrock City gu bith. Tha an clàr ag innse an sgeulachd a tha air cùl baile Butte, Montana, baile mèinnearachd, bho taobh Mìcheal Conway, bho theaghlach Sheumais. Ann an 1910, shiubhal Mìcheal Conway à Èirinn gu Butte agus sia bliadhna às dèidh sin, aig aois 25, bha Mìcheal Conway air a mhurt.

Cha bhi Solas a’ cluich ach aon turas ann an Alba anns an Seann Fruitmarket ann an Glaschu tro Celtic Connections agus bidh an neach-ciùil ainmeil Dick Gaughan agus còmhlan brass Co-operative Funeralcare a’ nochdadh air an àrd-ùrlair airson urram a thoirt dha na còmhlain à bailtean mèinnearachd.

Tha sgeulachd agus eachdraidh nan eilthireach air a lìbhrigeadh air an àrd-ùrlair a’ cleachdadh ghoireasan ioma-mheadhan. Sàr sgeòil a tha cho freagarrach an-diugh ’s a bha iad a-riamh agus seo air a dhearbhadh ann an cinn-naidheachd 2013.

Tha Seumas Egan cuideachd ag innse gu bheil Solas airson sgeulachd nan teaghlaichean innse don luchd-amhairc aig tachartasan beò. Thèid am film Shamrock City fhaicinn tron chonsart le dealbhan à Butte, Montana a bhios a’ cur a’ phrosbaig air beatha agus bàs Conway agus a’ toirt thugainn sùil air beatha mar in-imriche tron Tionndadh Gnìomhachais.

Ged a bhios an consart a’ fosgladh le cèol mu sgeulachd Shamrock City, bidh Solas, a tha a’ comharrachadh còig bliadhna deug còmhla, a’ toirt oidhche shònraichte do luchd-amhairc Ghlaschu le measgachadh de dh’òrain aosta agus ùr a thuilleadh air leithid Woody Guthrie agus Bruce Springsteen. Gu cinnteach tha luchd-amhairc an t-Seann Fruitmarket air an còmhlan Ceilteach as inntinnich à Ameireaga fhaicinn.

Chithear Cuirm @ Celtic: Solas - Shamrock City, a chaidh a riochdachadh le Bees Nees airson BBC ALBA air Disathairne 26 Faoilleach aig 9f le ath-chraoladh air Oidhche na Sàbaid 27 Faoilleach aig 11f.
