GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center is adding a virtual concert performed by the band We Banjo 3 to its programming schedule, streamed from Pearse Lyons Distillery in Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday, March 13 at 5pm.
Tickets purchased through the Mahaiwe benefit it in part.
"The fact that this show will happen over St. Patrick's Day weekend is just an added bonus," said Mahaiwe Executive Director Janis Martinson. "We would be excited to present We Banjo 3 at any time of year, because of their close harmonies, infectious beats, stunning precision, and just-plain-danceable songs. These award-recognized musicians are at the top of their sound."
We Banjo 3, the Galway, Ireland- and Nashville-based quartet is comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley. The band converges the shared and varied traditions of Americana, Bluegrass, and Celtic music with pop-sensible songcraft to create a unique and signature sound.
For the March 13 virtual performance, all four We Banjo 3 band members will be together and playing live on stage for the first time since the pandemic shut down concerts a year ago.
Virtual admission starts at $25 and includes various bonus packages. For tickets and more information, see mahaiwe.org.
