MIAC Live: We Banjo 3
Tuesday January 15, 2019 - 7:30 pm
Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center
We Banjo 3 is one of the most prolific and exciting bands to emerge from Ireland in recent years. The band performs in Erie on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 7:30 p.m. at Mercyhurst University’s Walker Recital Hall. 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. Collectively these highly-respected players hold over a dozen “All Ireland” titles and are revered by their peers. 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. From Merlefest in North Carolina to BottleRock in Napa Valley, from Summercamp in Illinois to the Milwaukee Irish Fest, these talented musicians bring audiences to their feet. Tickets are $26 for adults, $21 for seniors, and $16 for students/youth. Visit miac.mercyhurst.edu or call the box office at 814-824-3000.
