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!

We Banjo 3's music includes lots of tenor banjo, plus fiddle, other strings and song, and an ingenious new fusion of traditional tunes and original with many American influences. They have a very dynamic and energetic stage presence. We Banjo 3 has a sound we think is the most exciting new sound in years in the genre--actually in many genres, Irish tunes + American trad, American blues and bluegrass, from Keb Mo to Olla Belle Reed, and cool new original songs are all part of their sound.

Welcome them to the Berger Center for their first Arizona gig!
