By fusing together the sounds of the banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin, We Banjo 3 has created their signature sound of “Celtgrass,” which could be described, and the common ground, between old world traditional Irish music and authentic Americana music.  

The band’s rousing revelry, sheer virtuosity, power, passion and purpose, found in all four of their albums, have made them one of the music world’s most celebrated ensembles. Their imaginative sound has earned them a solid reputation on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.  

They have claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s World Music charts, earned top honors from the Irish Music Rights Organization, entertained international world leaders and have been described as “the gold standard of Irish and American Roots music.”  

We Banjo 3 is made of two sets of siblings – brothers Edna Scahill (tenor banjo and vocals) and Fergal Scahill (fiddle, viola, dobro, percussion, guitar, mandolin and vocals) and brothers Martin Howley (tenor banjo, mandolin and vocals) and David Howley (lead vocals and guitar), along with friend Trevor Hutchinson (bass).  

The five musicians have a natural symmetry and chemistry. While the instrumental interplay is always evident in their performances, each musician adds his distinct style, further affirming their collective cause and chorus.  

Just as the band’s sound has evolved from the beginning – starting with three banjo players before eventually diversifying – so have their musical boundaries. Their 2012 debut album, Roots of the Banjo Tree, leaned entirely on banjo music.  

Their critically acclaimed 2014 sophomore album, Gather the Good, took that starting point and mixed it with their initial experiences of touring the U.S. and their introduction to Nashville. In 2015, Live in Galway was recorded and released from the same small hometown pub where the band performed their very first gig. 

Their latest album, String Theory, released in 2016, is a mix of half traditional covers and half original material. This mix displays the band’s reverence and affection for their roots, but also their innovation and genius in adding a contemporary twist.
