We Banjo 3 - 'the future of world music'

We Banjo 3.

WE BANJO 3 return to the Róisín Dubh to officially launch - on this side of the Atlantic - their latest album, String Theory, which has already been No 1 on Billboard's World Music charts.

The album was released on July 30 and has met with critical acclaim stateside, with US roots magazine Elmore, saying: "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.”

String Theory marks something of a departure for the quartet, as indicated by its dramatic, humourous, cover showing the band - David Howley, Martin Howley, Enda Scahill, and Fergal Scahill, in steam-punk attire working like a series of mad scientists on a heady broth spewing from a distillation apparatus.
