Solas, The Duhks

by Metroland Staff on January 10, 2013


“Shamrock City” is the name of the new multimedia project by Irish-American supergroup Solas. In songs and images, the band tell the story of Michael Conway, the great-great uncle of frontman Seamus Egan. Conway travelled to Butte, Mont., at the turn of the 20th century to work in copper mines and died a few years later in an industrial accident. The band’s show will explore the immigrant experience of Conway and his countrymen. Canadien roots-rockers the Duhks will open. (Jan. 12, 7:30 PM, $24, Empire State Plaza, Albany, 473-1845)
