acoustic guitarists: Gypsy Jazz legend Lulo Reinhardt
fingerstyle innovator Mike Dawes
and multi-genre showman Andre Krengel
Lulo has expanded on the legacy of his grand-uncle Django with
Latin-flavored rhythms and melodies, while Mike's lightning-speed and deft
tapping and percussion were among the highlights of last year's IGN tour.
Andre is a master of many styles from flamenco to swing to modern
ballads and he is a frequent collaborator with Lulo in Germany. The quartet will be recording a live album while on tour this fall in Europe.

2016 marks the 20th Anniversary of the quintessential Irish-American band, Solas. Formed in 1996, in a manner befitting their name (Gaelic for "light"), Solas burst onto the Irish music scene and instantly became a beacon - an incandescent ensemble that found contemporary relevance in timeless traditions.
Eleven albums later, with numerous awards to their credit, and more miles traveled touring the world to count, Solas will mark this milestone with an exciting new recording project and tour, All These Years. Anchored by founding members Seamus Egan (flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, whistles, guitars, bodhran) and Winifred Horan (violins, vocals), who form the backbone of the uniquely definable Solas sound, long time members Eamon McElholm (guitars, keyboards, vocals), and Mick McAuley (button accordion, vocals) and newest member, the dynamic Moira Smiley (vocals, banjo), Solas is musically at the top of their game and continues to be the standard bearer not only for great Irish music, but great music in any genre. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Solas bring the past, present, and future of the band to the stage, with a program sure to delight audiences with old favorites and with new material that lights the way forward. The Boston Globe calls Solas "the finest Celtic ensemble this country has ever produced," while the Wall Street Journal notes that the band "has electrified crowds everywhere it has played; it's an Irish traditional band bearing all the marks of greatness."
