“Their blend of Celtic and Bluegrass with dashes of folk-pop and country is perfectly suited for the Americana scene….” - AXS

One of the best live acts to come out of Ireland in recent years is the multi-award winning We Banjo 3. With a 7-time all Ireland banjo champ, a 4-time banjo champ, an all-Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran, and boasting superb 4-part harmonies, they have taken the North American Celtic and Bluegrass worlds by storm.

WB3 has headlined virtually every major US Celtic fest for several years in a row. In ’17 and ’18 they rapidly gained favor in the Bluegrass and Americana world as evidenced by their return invites to Merlefest, ROMP Fest, Sisters Folk Fest, Old Settlers Fest, Four Corners Fest, and others.

We Banjo 3 released their 6th CD, Roots to Rise Live, in July of 2019 in conjunction of the band’s summer and fall 2019 U.S. tours. 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. The band’s 2018 studio recording, Haven, spent 3 weeks at # 1 on that chart, marking the first time an Irish band held the #1 position on this chart. When Haven re-entered the chart at #5 in August 2019, joining Roots to Rise Live at the #1 position, WB3 made history again as the only Irish band to hold two top-5 chart positions simultaneously. Of Roots to Rise Live, Songlines Magazine reviewed “…this album by Celtgrass pioneers We Banjo 3 scorches its way through a rollercoaster set colliding their native Galway heritage with liberal helpings of blistering bluegrass and a telling nod to pop music.”
