‘We Banjo 3’ to play Strule Arts Centre in Omagh

On Friday 9 May at 8pm We Banjo 3 will be performing at Strule Arts Centre.

The award-winning quartet from Galway, Ireland combine Irish Music with Old-Time American and Bluegrass influences to reveal the banjo’s rich legacy and roots.

When this band of brothers take flight in a wave of virtuosity, verve and joie-de-vivre, feet tap and pulses race.

Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley are among the most celebrated and distinguished young musicians in Ireland today. Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals and percussion.

We Banjo 3 make a bold and extraordinary musical statement. Creativity, sensitivity and passion are present in full measure and Irish music is at the heart of what they play.

Their debut album Roots of the Banjo Tree won Irish Times Trad Album of the Year and Album of the Year in the Chicago publication Irish American News. We Banjo 3 have been racking up acclaim in recent times with headline appearances at the biggest folk festivals in the US, Ireland and the UK. 2014 will see the band hit new heights as they release their second album in the summer and embark on tours of the US, South America, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, France and Japan. Join us at Strule Arts Centre for a fantastic night of music!
