An Evening with We Banjo 3
Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 7:30 pm
DESCRIPTION

Debuting in the U.S. in 2012, We Banjo 3 has since emerged as fast-rising touring darlings in the country that two of the members now call home.

The Galway, Ireland, and Nashville-based quartet--comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley--continually push musical boundaries while maintaining an unwavering devotion to the essential audience experience. WB3 seamlessly converge the shared and varied traditions of Americana, Bluegrass, and Celtic music with popsensible songcraft to create a truly unique and gratifying signature sound. Brilliantly commanded instruments--banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and percussion--effortlessly elevate lead singer David Howley's propulsive voice. Live on stage, their songs carry the listener along until, at the perfect moment, the band crescendos into catchy choruses with pitch perfect harmonies. We Banjo 3 deliver their music with palpable rapport, stunning precision, and infectious energy. With recent stunning performances at such broad ranging festivals as Merlefest, BottleRock, Summercamp, ROMP, Wintergrass and others, enthusiasts of almost every genre of music are taking notice.

Actor/comedian and musician Steve Martin says of the band, "We Banjo 3...are making waves...here in
America. They are playing the banjo in a style that I didn't even know could be played like that."

We Banjo 3 released their 6th CD, Roots To Rise Live, in July 2019 . Recorded at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the CD features a mix of original material, traditional compositions, select cover songs, and two previously unreleased tunes. The CD debuted at the beginning of August at # 1 on Billboard's Bluegrass Albums Chart spending 4 weeks in the peak position.

We Banjo 3 is committed to giving back to the community, and raising awareness around the issue of mental health is a cause that is dear to their hearts. Toward this effort, We Banjo 3 donate $2.00 for every t-shirt and CD sold on their U.S. tours to organizations that work to provide mental health resources. In
2019, WB3 raised $7500.00 for Mental Health America, a community-based nonprofit that addresses the needs of those living with mental illness and promotes the mental health of all Americans. For 2020, We Banjo 3 is partnering with start-up not-for-profit Backline. Backline works to support the mental health of music industry professionals and their families by providing streamlined access to mental health and wellness services and educational resources specific to the work and lifestyle of the music industry community.
