We Banjo 3 is one of the most prolific and exciting bands to emerge from Ireland in recent years. Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, percussion and beautiful harmonies, this Galway and Nashville based quartet comprises two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley, who collectively hold over a dozen “All Ireland” titles and are among the most revered musicians in Ireland today. The Howley brothers now call Nashville home.
We Banjo 3 is touring in support of Haven, their 4th studio recording, which was released on July 27, 2018. Haven reached # 1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart the week of August 13th, as well as making many other charts, and was # 1 again the week of November 4th. The video for the first single, “Light In The Sky,” premiered on CMT.com and is receiving airplay on highly recognized video outlets around the U.S.
Haven has received rave reviews including 4 STARS from Irish Times. AXS.com said, “Their blend of Celtic and bluegrass with dashes of folk-pop, and country is perfectly suited for the Americana scene. Their songs fall comfortably into The Lumineers style of earnest folk pop anthems.” No Depression writer Chris Griffy included Haven in his list of “20 Standout Americana Albums of 2018.”
RTE Radio 1 (the Irish equivalent to the BBC) named Haven “Folk Album of 2018” at their annual awards show in October.
