NASHVILLE, TN—Grassroots, crossover sensation WE BANJO 3 will perform at North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, 9501 Skokie Blvd, Skokie, IL, on Sunday, October 13th at 7:00PM.  Doors open at 6:00 p.m. This event is open to patrons of all ages. Ticket prices are $26.55-38.80. For more information call (847) 673-6300 or visit www.northshorecenter.org.

We Banjo 3 is one of the most prolific and exciting bands to emerge from Ireland in recent years. While their name might be a bit misleading, this Galway and Nashville-based quartet comprises two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley, on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bodhran, and percussion propelled by lead singer David Howley’s emotive voice and pitch perfect harmonies.  We Banjo 3’s music is a passionate blend of Americana, bluegrass, Celtic, world music and pop.  It is this diversity that makes them so appealing to talent bookers at major festivals in the U.S. such as Merlefest in North Carolina, BottleRock in Napa Valley, Summercamp in Illinois,  Milwaukee Irish Fest and more.  Wherever they perform, these talented musicians bring audiences to their feet!

Roots To Rise Live was released on July 19th; it debuted the week of August 3rd in the # 1 position on Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums Chart and spent 4 weeks in the top slot!  The band’s last studio recording, Haven, was released in July of 2018 and spent 3 weeks at # 1 on Billboard's Bluegrass Albums chart, the only self-released CD on a chart dominated by major label releases. Haven also re-entered the chart week of August 3rd in the # 5 position.  Haven marked the first time an Irish band entered the # 1 position on the chart, thus Roots To Rise Live marks the second time for We Banjo 3.

Roots To Rise Live was recorded on February 27-28, 2019, at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and features a mix of original material, traditional compositions, and select cover songs, including a surprise in the middle of “Prettiest Little Girl.”   It also includes two previously unreleased tunes, “Shine On,” which is a fan favorite at their live shows, and “John Brown’s.”  Engineered by Mike Monseur and produced and mixed by Frank Marchand, the stellar production is receiving much notice in the rave reviews from the press and radio programmers.  Roots To Rise Live is available on CD, vinyl and on most digital platforms.

We Banjo 3 continues to partner with Mental Health America on their Roots To Risetour to raise funds and awareness for the organization by donating $2.00 from the sale of every t-shirt and CD to M.H.A., the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all Americans.
