Annual Winter Celtic Music Festival January 29, 2011

This year for our annual Winter Celtic Music Festival, the Celtic Society of Southern Maryland proudly presents Solas - the most popular, influential, and exciting Celtic band to ever emerge from the United States. They will offer afternoon workshops ($40), 2 – 4PM, and an evening concert ($25) 7:30 pm, Saturday, 29 January 2011.
The Celtic Society continues to work with St. Mary’s Ryken High School, Leonardtown, MD as a collaborative effort to present this event to the community. Solas has performed internationally at many venues including Symphony Hall, Wolf Trap, the Ford Amphitheater, and Queens Hall in Edinburgh, Scotland. Founders Seamus Egan (flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, whistle, guitar and bodhran) and Winifred Horan (fiddle) anchor the sound of Solas as two highly regarded and emulated musicians in many genres of acoustic music. Haling from Ireland, Mick McAuley (accordion and concertina) and Eamon McElholm (guitar and keyboards) further enrich the sound. The internationally acclaimed super group has not only captured the hearts and ears of Irish music fans, but fans all around the globe with their blend of Celtic traditional, folk and country melodies, bluesy/jazz-inspired improvisations and global rhythms. Solas has built a fan base that includes acclaimed performers, such as, Bela Fleck, Emmylou Harris and the much sought-after rap producer Timbaland, who sampled the band on his radio hit “All Yall.” Their latest release “The Turning Tide” will be on sale during this event.
More information and sound samples of Solas’ music is available at Details about this event are available at, email, or call (301) 375-0534. Afternoon workshops from 2pm – 4pm will include Irish fiddle and penny whistle. Seating will be limited for the workshops, so register early!
