An Evening With We Banjo 3

We Banjo 3 (WB3) hosts “A Winter Wonderful,” a very special performance celebrating the holiday season. Billboard Bluegrass chart-toppers, and virtuoso players, We Banjo 3 have fine tuned their knack for seamlessly converging the shared and varied traditions of Americana, Bluegrass, and Celtic music with pop-sensible songcraft to create a truly unique signature sound. The Galway, Ireland quartet––comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley––continually push musical boundaries while maintaining an unwavering devotion to the essential audience experience. WB3’s “A Winter Wonderful” live show will feature traditional holiday tunes from both Ireland and from the U.S. and of course plenty of the fan-favorite original compositions that have made them such a beloved live band.
We Banjo 3 is a band from Galway, Ireland that plays a blend of traditional Irish, old time, and bluegrass music they call Celtgrass. The band is composed of two sets of brothers, Enda and Fergal Scahill and Martin and David Howley. Earle Hitchner, music writer for The Wall Street Journal, described their playing as a "freshness and finesse bordering on the magical," and LiveIreland proclaiming them "the hottest group in Irish music..." Their debut album Roots of the Banjo Tree was released in 2012 and was named "Traditional Music Album of the Year" by The Irish Times. This was followed by the release of Gather the Good in 2014.
