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 playing their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin ( and some Irish bodhran) in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub “Celtgrass.” [bluegrass + Irish = Celtgrass]

Bluegrass + Irish = Celtgrass!

 

One single ticket  J 397 is available online

 

The Fox (in concert-instrumental)

Happiness (music video-song)

We Banjo 3 is up of two sets of siblings — brothers Enda Scahill (tenor banjo, vocals) and Fergal Scahill (fiddle, viola, dobro, percussion, guitar, mandolin, vocals) and brothers Martin Howley (tenor banjo, mandolin, vocals) and David Howley (lead vocals, guitar).
