WE BANJO 3
The essence of We Banjo 3’s mastery, and ultimately the secret of their staggering artistic power, is their uncanny ability to channel the playful and celebratory dimensions of traditional Irish and American music. They write and perform with emotion, with incalculable brio and inventiveness, with power and subtlety and intelligence. But most of all, these four brothers write and play bravely. It is as if their standing as one of the best bands of their generation – and indeed as if the widely expressed opinion that their emergence represents a bright future for Irish music – was nothing when compared to the spirit of the tunes.
