We Banjo 3 are one of most innovative and highly respected bands in Ireland today and include two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley. Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, percussion and vocals, their sound is an infectious blend of traditional Irish Music with Americana, bluegrass, and a hint of pop, affectionately described as “Celtgrass.”
The crossover appeal of We Banjo 3 to fans of many genres of music and the intensity of the their live show have made them a staple headlining act at some of the biggest Irish and music festivals around the world. Barry Stapleton of the Milwaukee Irish Fest comments, “We Banjo 3 hit the sweet spot of where Irish, Celtic, bluegrass and Americana meet. A WB3 show is always ‘in the moment’ and each show brings a surprise or two…they are musically creative, spontaneous and fun, and always engage their audience.”
The focus of the “Earth & Sky” tour is for the band to bring as much joy and happiness to their audiences in the turbulent times in which we live. Martin Howley comments, “Every human, regardless of status, creed or color, lives between the earth & sky. More than ever we need some joy and harmony, so hopefully we’re coming to a venue near you and we can spread a little banjo happiness! And we’re delighted to welcome Scottish super group Talisk to the tour.”
