We Banjo 3

March 10

Bluegrass, Celtic, Folk, World

Celtgrass is shorthand for the music of We Banjo 3, two sets of brothers from Galway, Ireland. As the term suggests, the quartet explores the shared roots of traditional Irish music and American bluegrass. Contemporary folk-pop also rises on tunes sung by David Howley, most impressively on the immigrant-sympathetic “Light in the Sky” from 2018’s Haven. Mostly acoustic, the group’s picking prowess shines on instrumentals: banjos conspiring with mandolin, fiddle, guitar, and occasional guest horns to explore splendid nexuses like “Dawn Breaks.”
