​ABOUT US

“Solasta gave one of the most exhilarating and enchanting performances we have ever had....breathtakingly good, consummate young musicians with true flair and imagination"

Sheena Wellington, Patron of the Traditional Music Association of Scotland​​

Solasta are an outstanding new folk ensemble who are fast building a name for themselves with their inventive arrangements, unique sound and exhilarating live performances.

Comprised of award-winning Scottish fiddler Elisabeth Flett, Welsh cellist Hannah Thomas and English guitarist Jamie Leeming, their dynamic interpretations of Celtic based material are rooted firmly in tradition, whilst incorporating elements from diverse musical worlds including classical, jazz and early music.

Their self-titled EP, released in April 2016, is an excellent showcase of the trio’s rich and unified sound, a seamless blend of each member’s distinct artistic voice. Notable performances include Celtic Connections Festival, closing the 2016 Cecil Sharp House Fiddle Convention, Sidmouth Folk Week (as EFDSS Folk Rising Plus Artists), The Green Note and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. They have featured on BBC Radio Wales (Celtic Heartbeat), RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, Resonance FM, and The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast in the USA.

​They will be releasing their debut in album 2018, funded by a highly successful Kickstarter campaign which saw them raise a total of over £4500 (180% of the original target amount), comprising of over 120 backers from 12 different countries.
