We Banjo 3
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.” Four albums in -- their latest, String Theory, was released in July of
2016 -- the band’s rousing revelry, sheer virtuosity, power, passion and purpose have made them one of the
music world’s most celebrated ensembles. Variously described as “astonishing,” “the Gold Standard of Irish and
American Roots music,” and “the Irish Punch Brothers,” they’ve can claim the # 1 position in Billboard’s World
Music charts, top honours from IMOR (the Irish Music Rights Organization), solid sales numbers and the
distinction of entertaining an American president, an Irish Prime Minister and members of the U.S. Congress at
the annual “Friends of Ireland” luncheon on Capitol Hill. Little wonder then that We Banjo 3 is literally taking both
sides of the Atlantic by storm, carving a reputation as one of the world’s most imaginative ensembles.
