We Banjo 3 is one of the most prolific and exciting bands to emerge from Ireland in recent years. 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. The Howley brothers now call Nashville home.
We Banjo 3 is touring in support of Haven, their 4th studio recording, which was released on July 27, 2018. Haven reached #1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart the week of August 13, as well as making many other charts, and was #1 again the week of November 4. The video for the first single, "Light In The Sky," premiered on CMT.com and is receiving airplay on highly recognized video outlets around the U.S.
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."
RTE Radio 1 (the Irish equivalent to the BBC) named Haven “Folk Album of 2018” at their annual awards show in October.
We Banjo 3 has developed a loyal following in the U.S., Ireland and other parts of the world, winning over audiences at major music festivals, such as Merlefest, prestigious venues, and even President Barack Obama, with their joyous, engaging live show. In a review of this year's ROMP festival, Semi-Bluegrass said, “Probably my favorite set of the week, and arguably the most engaging and entertaining was the get-on-your-feet CeltGrass performance of Ireland's We Banjo 3. The band drew fans to the front of the stage like iron filings to a magnet and their energy and enthusiasm rippled through the crowd setting the stage for a great night of music. When they come around your neck of the woods, go see them...you owe it to yourself.”
