Mick McAuley, Winifred Horan & Colm O' Caoimh at The Steeple Sessions
27 Juni 2013
SOLAS has long been heralded as one of the most innovative and exciting bands to emerge on the Irish music scene over the last two decades and have been cited 'the best traditional band in the world' by the Boston Herald while the New York Times praised them as 'a five-piece of extraordinary instrumental and vocal fire-power'. So when Mick McAuley and Winifred Horan released their first duet album 'Serenade' in 2006, it was received with much anticipation and widespread critical acclaim being voted into the Top 5 Irish albums of 2006 by The Irish Times. Mick and Winifred have teamed up with the dynamic young guitarist, Colm O' Caoimh for their new album 'Sailing Back to You'. Colm, who is a founding member of the steadily rising Irish group Caladh Nua, has spent the last few years touring extensively throughout Europe and Canada. Colm brings to the project his own unique style of tune backing while complimenting the gentler vocal numbers and enhancing the subtleties of Winifred's unmistakable fiddle sound. Throw in Mick's vocal and instrumental talents and it all goes to make for a beautiful musical journey, sometimes haunting and soulful, other times joyful and exhilarating.
