“It’s as if the Punch Brothers, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and the Chieftains all got together for a battle of the bands but decided to pool their resources instead. The future of World Music has arrived.” – Elmore Magazine
One of the best live acts to come out of Ireland in recent years is the multi-awarded winning We Banjo 3. With a 7 time all Ireland banjo champ, a 4 time banjo champ, and another member who is an all Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran, and with a passionate lead vocalist like a young Springsteen adopted by the Chieftans, the result is truly unforgettable. On both sides of the Atlantic the word is out about this group.
WB3 performed at the “Friends of Ireland” luncheon on Capital Hill attended by House Speaker Paul Ryan, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and has headlined virtually every major US Celtic fest for several years in a row. Now the band is rapidly gaining favor in the Bluegrass and Americana world as evidenced by their invites to Merlefest, ROMP Fest, Sisters Folk Fest, Old Settlers Fest, Four Corners Fest and others.
“Count yourself among the fortunate. You are about to hear something new, something fresh, something daring, something that befits the bright, flamboyant spirit of the Banjo itself.” – Paul F. Wells, Director Emeritus, Mid Tennessee State Univ.
“They were absolutely the hottest show at this year’s Irish Fest in Milwaukee…the weekend featured the birth of a new force in Irish music” – LiveIreland.com
Coming from the coastal hills of Petaluma, California, Ismay represents the creative work of artist and horseback adventurer Avery Hellman. Drawing from bluegrass and old-time music as well as those who live in and write about the West, Ismay emanates from this cultural history with songs of the New American West.
