Solas Under the Stars August 2 in Chestnut Hill

The Irish traditional supergroup led by Hatboro native Seamus Egan is returning to Chestnut Hill for a FREE concert in Pastorius Park Wednesday, August 2, at 7:30 p.m.

Solas is by far the most popular of the 10 concerts in the Pastorius series, drawing 2,000 to last year's show.

If you come, make sure to bring a folding chair or blanket, and maybe a picnic supper. And don't forget bug spray. One of the down sides -- maybe the only down side -- of the outdoor venue is skeeters. But annoying little buzzing things aside, Pastorius is a lovely venue.

Although there is no charge for the concert, contributions are gratefully accepted, and we do encourage you to support the concert series.
