The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor presents We Banjo 3
“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,” says 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. The band 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. Don’t miss this early season warm-up!
The show begins at 7:30PM, doors for seating open at 6:30PM.
