ARTIST SNAPSHOT: We Banjo 3


ATHENS, GA (CelebrityAccess) — WE BANJO 3, an award-winning band from Galway, Ireland, performed on Tuesday, March 15th at the annual “Friends of Ireland” Luncheon on Capital Hill in Washington D.C. Hosted by House Speaker Paul Ryan, both President Barack Obama and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny were in attendance at this intimate, annual luncheon that dates back to 1983.


We Banjo 3 blend traditional Irish Music with Americana and Bluegrass affectionately described as “Celtgrass.” Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals and percussion, We Banjo 3 includes two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley. Collectively they are among the most celebrated and distinguished musicians in Ireland today who have been at the forefront of Irish banjo and fiddle for 2 decades. Martin Howley is a 7-time “All Ireland” Banjo champion while Enda Scahill, who is also an author on Irish banjo techniques, holds 4. Multi-instrumentalist Fergal Scahill is one of the most acclaimed fiddlers in Irish music and an “All Ireland” champion on fiddle and bodhran. Multi-instrumentalist David Howley is the group’s vocalist and also provides the band with its rhythm section. In addition to the many awards bestowed upon the band, We Banjo 3 is currently nominated by the Folk Alliance International for "Artist of the Year for 2015."


This year, We Banjo 3 was selected to be a part of Culture Ireland’s Centenary Programme, which commemorates the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising and is a global project dedicated to bringing the best of the Irish arts, including music, dance, film, theater and more, to an international audience. We Banjo 3 recently wrapped up the first leg of their U.S. spring tour, which will resume in late April with two shows in the Boston area.
