Finest Folk

Síolta. Across a far desert. 

That could be the way to describe the momentary situation for a lot of bands. Nonetheless Síolta have prescribed themselves work and more work to carry them through these barren times. The latest project being a video production with Nils Nolte, also known as the flautist with the German band An Tór. The most daunting part of this job was transferring the equipment up the 200+ steps of the Kulturm tower in Ludwigshafen. The rest was a breeze! Release should be the beginning of October. Watch out!

Síolta. Sowing the Seeds. 01.July 2020

With the global lockdown fever starting to stall at last, the band were finally able to get together. A basic instinct for any group. Saoirse gives a little insight in this mini video to whet your appetite for the future.

Good Friday 10. April 2020

For the day that's in it.

I wrote this song some four or five years back on another Good Friday. As always everything was toned down on the day, so I had some time on my hands. Out of the occasion, the song unfolded in one go, Although I really have a soft spot for it, it never made it as a band song and has only made it occasionally to the stage. It's one of those songs that need a certain handling. Eventually it did make it to Ghosts of Tomorrow though and it features Michael Busch on guitar and Andy Horn with bass and percussion, Katie Doherty's vocals catch the atmosphere head on.

The video was created solely on my mobile phone with two android apps, mostly because year for year as Easter came around, I felt I should share it. So easy on the criticism please. Anyway here it is. Get yer headphones on and Happy Easter!

Cultural Lockdown 2020. We’ll just all have to go through this and hope we come out the other side shining. Apart from the sadness and trepidation of this ever widening ‘pain in the ass’ virus, my thoughts are also with all involved in the music business. So to families, friends, colleagues and audiences alike. Let’s all hang on....


2020 sees Saoirse forming the all new Irish band Síolta. Consisting of his trio partners Michael Busch and Stefan Emde along with the Irish/German flute player and multi-instrumentalist Brian Haitz, and finally ex-Fleadh bassman Thomas von Haefen. The talent and musicianship has been already quoted as excellent.

Solta Irish Music coming to Life

Saoirse Mhór Multi award winning singer songwriter. Irish to boot. Is it in the Irish blood that makes the songs seep from it's inhabitants by nature? Given in the milk as some say? Saoirse is placed among the contempory Irish songwriters of today reflecting life as it is now and not solely as it was, lost in forgotten fading traditions. His songs praised by none less than Christy Moore or Colm Sands. And yet, what is a compliment or a review? It's the performance that tells and to be experienced.

Working up front with the successful German/Irish Folk band Fleadh or in the intimate surroundings with acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Michael Busch and fiddler Stefan Emde. The result will always be the same. The delivery. The song.

Saoirse has played Ireland, Holland, Poland, Switzerland and Germany in his travels and there is more to come. Catch him if you can!
