We Banjo 3 hail from Co. Galway and play a blend of traditional Irish, old time, and bluegrass music they call Celt Grass. The band is composed of two sets of brothers, Enda and Fergal Scahill and Martin and David Howley, and frequent substitute Garry O'Meara. Earle Hitchner, music writer for The Wall Street Journal, described their playing as a “freshness and finesse bordering on the magical," and LiveIreland proclaiming them "the hottest group in Irish music..." Their debut album Roots of the Banjo Tree was released in 2012 and was named “Traditional Music Album of the Year” by The Irish Times. This was followed by the release of Gather the Good in 2014. Siobhan Long, music critic for the Irish Times, writes "We Banjo 3 are a musical Betty Ford Clinic, almost singlehandedly rehabilitating the much maligned banjo in 4 short years." In 2016 the band released their fourth album String Theory which debuted at Number One on the Billboard Charts. The current line-up is:
- Enda Scahill - Banjo, Mandolin, Tenor Guitar
- Martin Howley - Banjo, Mandolin, Tenor Guitar
- David Howley - Banjo, Vocals, Guitar
- Fergal Scahill - Fiddle, Guitar, Bodhrán
