Irish vocalist Karan Casey and guitar virtuoso John Doyle were founding members of traditional supergroup Solas. Since Solas, each has carved out a unique and acclaimed place in contemporary Irish and folk music.

Karan Casey has recorded five solo albums, has won Best Irish Female Vocalist twice, Best Irish Folk album and a Grammy for her collaboration with Paul Winter. She has been nominated for the BBC Folk Awards.

John Doyle’s rhythmic guitar chops and effortless harmonies make him much in demand as a musical partner. He currently tours with Joan Baez as her musical director and with virtuoso fiddler Liz Carroll.

Doyle and Carroll played for President Obama in March 2009, and their CD Double Play received a 2010 Grammy nomination.
