Elisabeth Flett (Fiddle), Jamie Leeming (Guitar), Hannah Thomas (Cello) blew us away at their Showcase in June 2017 … 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, The Green Note 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. Trials of Cato are an amazing Celtic influenced folk with a skilled and familiar sound but listen to the words and you will find motorbikes, beards, turbans and tales much closer to the lives and times of today. Robin Jones – mandolin, tenor banjo, vocals, William Addison – irish bouzouki, vocals, Tomos Williams – guitar, vocals
