Celtgrass from Ireland

Billboard # 1 Artists from Ireland (Irish, Bluegrass, Old Time, Folk)

Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, percussion and beautiful harmonies, this Galway and Nashville based quartet comprises two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley, who collectively hold over a dozen “All Ireland” titles and are among the most revered musicians in Ireland today.

We Banjo 3 released their fourth studio recording, Haven, in July 2018, as the follow up to their highly-acclaimed 2016 release, String Theory, which went to # 1 on Billboard’s World Music Chart. Haven has received rave reviews including 4 STARS from Irish Times. AXS.com said, “Their blend of Celtic and bluegrass with dashes of folk-pop, and country is perfectly suited for the Americana scene. Their songs fall comfortably into The Lumineers style of earnest folk pop anthems.”

Most recently, he spent seven years in his mother’s native country of France, where he collaborated on projects including Romanian music and contemporary pop/rock. The January 25 concert will be a voyage across three centuries of guitar music, as well as works of J.S. Bach adapted for the guitar. Holmes will feature showpieces from the traditional classical guitar repertoire, including works by Isaac Albéniz, Francisco Tárrega, Heitor Villa Lobos and Fernando Sor.
