OUR NEW ALBUM

We are Solasta, a London based folk trio. Our first ever performance was in 2015 at the Cecil Sharp House Senior Fiddle Championship (which our fiddler Elisabeth won!). We recorded an EP in October that year, and since then have been busy performing all across the country​.

During the last two years, we have been intensively writing and arranging new material, and are now ready to record our debut album.

​To fund the recording of our album we are running a Kickstarter campaign where you can
pre-order the album, get a personal composition written by us or even book us for a private gig.

We are grateful for all your support.

ABOUT US
Solasta are an outstanding folk trio who are fast building a name for themselves on the back of their inventive arrangements, unique sound and exhilarating live performances.

Comprised of award-winning fiddler Elisabeth Flett, cellist Hannah Thomas and 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.

Notable performances include Celtic Connections Festival, Cecil Sharp House and Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club. Solasta have featured on BBC Radio Wales (Celtic Heartbeat), Resonance FM (interviews/live performances), and The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast in the USA.

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