Ireland's We Banjo 3 return to Mountain Stage on this week's broadcast.

Our Fall season continues with a fresh episode featuring Ireland’s We Banjo 3, Memphis’ modern soul band Southern Avenue, eclectic rock band Cordovas, Canadian acoustic blues belter Matt Andersen, and the folk rock diva from New Orleans, Lilli Lewis. Join us on these public radio stations starting Friday, Sept. 16, 2022.

Ireland’s progressive roots group We Banjo 3 make their second appearance on Mountain Stage this week. The Galway, Ireland, and Nashville-based quartet––comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley, the band incorporates banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and percussion beside strong choruses and melodic hooks, to create their buzz-worth live shows.

Our Song of the Week is the band’s performance of “Garden Song,” which is included on their album Open The Road.
