Since 2012, We Banjo 3 has toured the U.S. several times a year, building a passionate and loyal following. The Galway, Ireland quartet––comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley––have fine-tuned their knack for seamlessly converging the shared and varied traditions of Americana, Bluegrass, and Celtic music with pop-sensible songcraft to create a truly unique signature sound.
On tour, WB3 continually push musical boundaries while maintaining an unwavering devotion to the essential audience experience. For the upcoming December tour dates, the band hosts festive holiday shows––featuring performances of traditional holiday tunes from both Ireland and from the U.S. (in addition to plenty of the fan-favorite original compositions that have made them such a beloved live band).
We Banjo 3’s first ever holiday album, A Winter Wonderful, is available on all digital music platforms beginning December 3 (it is available for Pre/Order here). With the eight song collection––which features traditional holiday tunes from their native country and from the United States––Ireland’s brightest acoustic band delivers a seasonal recording like no other. Special guests include Scott Mulvahill (double bass), Kiana Howley (fiddle) and Ruth Smith (vocals).
WB3’s Martin Howley says of the tour, “The friendships and kinships we’ve experienced on the road all over the world were interwoven into an incredible celebration last year during the pandemic with our livestreamed concerts. The holiday edition, ‘A Winter Wonderful,’ was a particular highlight, so we want to make it an annual tradition. We are so thrilled to return to the U.S. after close to 21 months off the road for our Winter Wonderful tour, which will include very special livestream on December 18th direct from the Rocky Mountains. Our fans can celebrate the holiday season with our banjo family in venues and in their living rooms.”
