Another Day (Shanachie 78056)

Solas is an American based Irish group comprising Deirde Scanlan (lead vocals), Seamus Egan (flute), Winifred Koran (fiddles), guitarist I singer John Doyle and Mick McAuley (button accordion).
They perform the usual mixture of Irish reels and jigs (both traditional and self composed) and songs. Most of the songs are contemporary, but my favourite is the plaintive 'I Wandered by a Brookside' (also recorded by Eva Cassidy), which turns out to be traditional!
