AllMusic Review by

Solas Live delivers exactly what the title suggests: a lively, 90-minute performance from the traditional Celtic group Solas. Traditional jigs, reels, and ballads such as "She Is Like the Swallow," "Pastures of Plenty," "The Maid on the Shore," and "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" display the group's distinctive fusion of timeless melodies and contemporary instrumentation, as well as Karen Casey's yearning vocals. Though the disc lacks extra DVD features, the vibrance of Solas' performance will delight Celtic music fans looking for the real deal.
