company descriptionWeBanjo3 are an award-winning quartet from Galway, Ireland. Comprised of 2 sets of brothers, they combine the best of Irish Music with Old-Time American and Bluegrass influences to reveal the banjo’s rich legacy and roots. When this band of brothers take flight in a wave of virtuosity, verve and joie-de-vivre, feet tap and pulses race.
Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley are among the most celebrated and distinguished musicians in Ireland today. Collectively WeBanjo3 have performed with luminaries such as Mumford and Sons, The Chieftains and Ricky Skaggs and have played all over the world from the hallowed Grand Ole Opry in Nashville Tennessee and the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin, to far flung locales such as Columbia and Japan.
Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals and percussion We Banjo 3 make a bold and extraordinary musical statement. Creativity, sensitivity and passion are present in full measure and Irish music is at the heart of what they play.
Collectively, WeBanjo3 have been at the forefront of Irish music for 2 decades. Their success is unrivalled, holding over 20 Irish Music Championship titles between them.
"These ultra-talented Irish performers .....
freshness and finesse bordering on magical”
