SOLASTA
solastaband@gmail.com

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.

​We launched a Kickstarter campaign, which in September 2017 successfully raised far beyond our target.

We are grateful for all your support!
