More Info:

For over a decade, SOLAS has been recognized as the most influential Irish-American super group. On THE TURNING TIDE, the band delivers the raw instrumental virtuosity, the power, the rhythmic 'hump', and the dynamic vocal blend that no other band since The Bothy Band has mastered. THE TURNING TIDE offers well-conceived set of tunes and songs that share an underlying theme of social commentary. Renditions of Josh Ritter's 'Girl The War', Bruce Springsteen's 'The Ghost of Tom Joad', and Richard Thompson's 'Poor Ditching Boy' are as topical and engaging as anything SOLAS has ever done.
