Solas, the acclaimed Irish-American quintet, performs in a live broadcast from Burlington's Flynn Theatre. Since their debut performance in the spring of 1996, Solas has gained international recognition for their energetic interpretations of both traditional and contemporary Irish music.

In addition to being Solas' Vermont debut, the St. Patrick's Day performance marks a first-ever, live collaboration between Vermont Public Television and the Flynn Theatre. Both organizations have long been known for their commitment to innovative performance programming.
Members of Solas include: Karen Casey, vocals ; John Doyle, guitars ; Seamus Egan, concert flute, banjo, low whistle ; Winifred Horan, fiddle ; Mick McAuley, button accordion, low whistle. Recorded live Mar. 17, 1998 at the Flynn Theatre, Burlington, Vt.
The Vermont International Film Festival is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community and bring the world to Vermont through film.
Launched in 2014 by a group of filmmakers, archivists and concerned members of the public who wished to ensure the survival of artists’ films in Vermont, VAMP officially became a program of VTIFF in May 2015. The VAMP committee has broadened the initial concept to include all types of films and videos made by VT filmmakers or shot in Vermont.
