Another Day - Solas
Versatility reigns supreme for 'Another Day', the new album by Philadelphia Irish music innovators, Solas. I'm learning to adopt a special discipline when listening to a new Solas disc which involves clearing my mind of all inclinations and expectations. It's best to let their imaginative and brilliantly executed arrangements carry you from track to track.Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, Seamus Egan is greatly responsible for the band's timeless take on Irish music (Is it contemporary or traditional? One's never completely sure). Solas has beguiled many listeners and made many fans, naturally among them, some of acoustic music's most inventive notables. Bela Fleck guests on Another Day. Solas also scored big when they acquired the lovely voice of Deirdre Scanlan after Karen Casey's departure. Marie Mhilis Bhrea showcases her sweet Gaelic lilt.
