Solas – the group NPR’s The Thistle & Shamrock call “Irish America’s most influential band” – presents Shamrock City: a multimedia show of original music and featuring remarkable photos and stories from turn-of-the-century copper boomtown, Butte, Montana. Inspired by a family story of immigration, mining and murder, Solas and bandleader Seamus Egan will take you on the unforgettable journey of his great-great uncle Michael Conway’s life in Ireland and mysterious death in America.
“Solas populates their newly-minted, wily western landscape with gamblers, drinkers and women...a richly-textured musical backdrop that could be a first-cousin-once-removed of Springsteen’s The Seeger Sessions.” – The Irish Times
Run time: approx. 100 minutes, one intermission
