We Banjo 3

January 27, 2019 7 – 8:30 p.m.

With a "freshness and finesse bordering on the magical” (The Wall Street Journal) the four members of We Banjo 3 plays a blend of traditional Irish, Americana, and bluegrass music they call Celtgrass.

Originally from Galway, Ireland, We Banjo 3 is made up of two sets of brothers: Enda and Fergal Scahill, and Martin and David Howley. Their 2012 debut album Roots of the Banjo Tree  was named "Traditional Music Album of the Year" by The Irish Times. Their 2016 album String Theory debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard World Music Charts —the first independent Irish band to achieve this honor. In addition to banjo, the group performs on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and bodhrán (Irish drum) in a thrilling display of virtuosity, mastery, and joy.

Variously described as “astonishing,” “the Gold Standard of Irish and American Roots music,” and “the Irish Punch Brothers," We Banjo 3 is taking both sides of the Atlantic by storm, carving a reputation as one of the world’s most imaginative ensembles.
