The Seamus Egan (of Solas) Project

Iron Horse Music Hall (20 Center Street, Northampton MA 01060)


It’s hard to think of an artist in traditional Irish music more influential than Seamus Egan. From his beginnings as a teen prodigy, to his groundbreaking solo work with Shanachie Records, to his founding of Irish-American powerhouse band Solas, to his current work as one of the leading composers and interpreters of the tradition, Egan has inspired multiple generations of musicians and helped define the sound of Irish music today. As a multi-instrumentalist, he’s put his mark on the sound of the Irish flute, tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle, and low whistle, among others.

Seamus Egan will be touring as a solo performer, bringing along friends and musical guests, and making music that points towards the origins of Solas in the 1990s.
