Description

"It’s as if the Punch Brothers, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and the Chieftains all got together for a battle of the bands but decided to pool their resources instead. The future of World Music has arrived." - Elmore Magazine
"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 seven-time, All-Ireland banjo champ, a four-time banjo champ, and another member who is an All-Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran, and boasting superb four-part harmonies as well, they have not surprisingly 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.

With their latest release, "Haven" (July 2018) reaching not only the top 3 of the Billboard World Music chart, but incredibly achieving #1 album on the Bluegrass chart, ahead of the likes of Punch Brothers and Old Crow Medicine show, they are already seeing offers for some prestigious mainstream festivals in 2019.

The crossover from niche to mainstream is well underway!
