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.
