WE BANJO 3

plus support

_ Main Venue _ Facebook event

Award-winning quartet WeBanjo3 from Galway, Ireland combine Irish Music with Old-Time American and Bluegrass influences to reveal the banjo’s rich legacy and roots. When this band of brothers take flight in a wave of virtuosity, verve and joie-de-vivre, feet tap and pulses race.

Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley are among the most celebrated and distinguished young musicians in Ireland today.

Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals and percussion We Banjo 3 make a bold and extraordinary musical statement. Creativity, sensitivity and passion are present in full measure and Irish music is at the heart of what they play.

Collectively, WeBanjo3 have been at the forefront of Irish banjo and fiddle for 2 decades. Their competitive success is unrivalled, Martin holding 7 All Ireland titles, Enda with 4, while Fergal and David hold All Ireland titles on Banjo, Fiddle, Bodhran and Guitar.

Enda has recorded and toured with the best of the best including The Chieftains, Frankie Gavin, Stockton’s Wing, Grammy-winner Ricky Skaggs and “Instrumental Band of the Decade” The Brock McGuire Band. Fergal has performed with David Munnelly, Martin O’Connor and Kevin Crawford and has toured the world with Ragus and Celtic Legends. Martin was the very first Irish banjo player to perform at the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville and David is fast building a reputation for his deep, muscular singing.

We Banjo 3 play with swing and soul, effortlessly combining the best of Irish and Bluegrass banjo music and song, mining the rich vein of the American Old Time tradition and thoroughly reinventing the banjo band sound. Modern rhythms, traditional melodies, virtuosic technique and innovative arrangements of music and song add up to an incredible feast of banjo and mandolin music – guaranteed to put a smile on your face and get your feet tapping.
