Solas

When: Sat., March 12 2011

There are tons of reasons to be excited about the band Solas coming here tonight. For the Irish among us, it's an excuse (as though one were needed) to carry on the celebration started by this morning's St. Patrick's Day Parade. For others, it may be the band's eclectic but awfully catchy take on Celtic music, or the fact that Solas violinist Winifred Horan used to play with the god-like Pierce Turner. And for anyone else, there are all those over-the-top but well-deserved critical accolades, like the Boston Herald calling them "the first truly great Irish band to arise from America." They're at Stargazers (10 S. Parkside Drive, stargazerstheatre.com) at 7:30, for $25 in advance or $30 at the door (with a $15 discount for students and military). And unlike many St. Patrick's events, it's all-ages. — Bill Forman
