Madison favorite We Banjo 3 is a headliner of the Madison Celtic Festival.

From Galway, Ireland, We Banjo 3 are the true originators of a new genre of music that combines traditional Irish music with American bluegrass music to form "Celtgrass." Made up of two sets of siblings — brothers Enda Scahill (tenor banjo, vocals) and Fergal Scahill (fiddle, viola, dobro, percussion, guitar, mandolin, vocals) and brothers Martin Howley (tenor banjo, mandolin, vocals) and David Howley (lead vocals, guitar) – We Banjo 3 finds a natural symmetry as well as a cohesive chemistry that’s been imbued in the band ever since they were initially drawn to one another by their common creative interests. We Banjo 3 is literally taking both sides of the Atlantic by storm, carving a reputation as one of the world’s most imaginative ensembles.

“The banjo has for too long languished on the periphery, treading a path between margins too narrow to fully exploit its full potential. Recent years have changed all that, though, with We Banjo 3 boldly excavating the instrument’s rich expanse to impressive effect”- The Irish Times

“Two sets of brothers in perfect musical harmony. In all our years, we have never seen a stunning opening like this by a traditional group. The current talk of the business, and rightly so.”- Concert of the Year- We Banjo 3- Irishfest Milwaukee
