We Banjo 3 – from Ireland – 02/14/18 – Berger Performing Arts Center

Comments Off on We Banjo 3 – from Ireland – 02/14/18 – Berger Performing Arts Center

 

For all the innovation and invention that goes into modern music these days, it’s the inspiration derived from one’s roots that proves the most enduring. So credit Galway, Ireland’s We Banjo 3 for finding common ground between old world tradition and authentic Americana by plying their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub “Celtgrass.”

Bluegrass + Irish = Celtgrass!
