Solas 2013: Imagination State

There's a new exuberance around Solas this year. Is it the new site, the new outdoor mainstage or maybe just the surprisingly sunny weather?

The new site may mean be another hour and a quarter's drive for us, but it was more than worth it.


The highlight of each day for me was the Festival Club: an open-mic running into the wee small hours shared by festival-goers and booked artists alike. Where else would you see one act that melded an account of an argument between two old men in Gaelic with pre-feminist Swedish advice for young women?

Solas has a heart and a character that is difficult to ignore.
