We Banjo 3/Pat Mulloy of Marys Lane 

When: Sun., March 6, 4 p.m. 2016
Price: $18 ADV, $20 DOS
An award-winning quartet out of Galway, Ireland, We Banjo 3 has become a festival favorite since forming some five years ago. The band plays “Celtgrass,” a distinct style of music that draws from Irish folk, Americana and bluegrass. The band, which includes two sets of brothers (Enda and Fergal Scahill and Martin and David Howley) has won some serious accolades too. Howley is a 7-time All Ireland Banjo champion while Enda Scahill holds 4 titles. Multi-instrumentalist Fergal Scahill is one of the most acclaimed fiddlers in Irish music and an “All Ireland” champion on fiddle and bodhran. The current U.S. tour is a part of Culture Ireland’s Centenary Programme, a commemoration of the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Expect to hear plenty of songs from the band’s latest album, last year’s twangy Gather the Good. (Niesel)
