Solas At the Ellen Theater

March 10, 2012 | 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Additional Information

“…mind-blowing Irish folk music, maybe the world’s best.” -Philadelphia Inquirer

Loudly proclaimed by critics and fans alike as one of the most influential Celtic bands to emerge from the United States, Solas returns to The Ellen Theatre in downtown Bozeman for one night only, Saturday, March 10th.

With special interest to Montanans, Solas has been hard at work on a new music and storytelling project, Shamrock City. With ten albums under their belt, Solas’ band leader Seamus Egan was inspired by his family history to create their most ambitious project to date. Shamrock City tells the story of Butte, MT, a mining town at the turn of the 20th century, as seen through the eyes of an Irish immigrant and Seamus’ great-great uncle, Michael Conway. In 1910 he sailed from Cobh, Co. Cork in Ireland to Philadelphia and then made his way to Butte to work in the copper mines. Six years later, at the young age of 25, he was dead from a blow to the head. With audio recorded in Philadelphia and film footage in Butte, Shamrock City seeks to not only uncover the life and young death of Conway, but to also illuminate life as an immigrant during the Industrial Revolution.

Tickets for Solas are only $22.00 each and may be purchased online at or by calling the Ellen Theatre box office at 585-5885. Beer, wine and cocktails will be served in the Ellen lobby beginning at 7 PM and the concert starts at 8 PM.
