Banjos are Cool Now
Galway, Ireland-based band We Banjo 3 combines the Celtic tunes of their heritage with American bluegrass, creating a fusion genre they like to call “Celtgrass.” Their virtuosic banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin make for a plucky brew that’s good for dancing in the aisles to. Think of The Lumineers but like, more Irish. On Wednesday, Jan. 30 We Banjo 3 plays at South Broadway Cultural Center for a night that will certainly leave your toes tapping for days after. Doors open at 7pm and music is 7:30 to 10pm. This show is open to all ages. Tickets are $15 to $20 in advance or $22 the day of show, so buy yours early through Eventbrite or by calling 505-886-1251.
