Live in Galway

“These four lads just keep taking their musical genius to new levels and whatever about the magic of their last two studio albums, there’s nothing like the raw emotion and fusion of the live experience…….Live in Galway is banjo driven rocket fuel and the spark of We Banjo 3 has ignited a musical furnace that is set to burn for a long, long time”
– Eileen McCabe, Irish Music Magazine

“Live in Galway by We Banjo 3 sets a new standard in Acoustic Roots Music”
– Niall Toner, RTE Radio 1

“In many ways We Banjo 3 are an Irish version of Chris Thile and Punch Brothers”
-Michael Jonathon, host of Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour

“An infusion of no-holds-barred, high-octane live music – 4 stars”
– Siobhan Long, The Irish Times (read full review here)

“Perhaps the only complaint one can have about Live in Galway is that there’s no companion DVD of the performance, so that you can actually see, and believe, what your ears are hearing. That’s probably the ultimate bench mark for a live album”

– Sean Smith,

“We Banjo 3 are simply one of the best bands on the planet – they can fire you up into wanting to lep around one moment and stir your soul with something deep and passionate the next. They are musicians deeply rooted in the tradition who are not afraid to push a few boundaries and give us all a damn good time while they’re doing it.”
– Mike Harding, The Mike Harding Folk Show

“A well-hewn effort that maintains the group’s high standard and reinforces the legend of their high-energy shows. We Banjo 3 have built for themselves a fascinating musical niche”
– Daniel Neely, The Irish Echo (read full review here)

“Banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins, percussion and some fine vocals rip their way through some mostly American/bluegrass tinged and cracking tunes……….high octane stuff, full of energy”
– Fiona Heywood – The Living Tradition

“We Banjo 3 combine instrumental dexterity and collection alchemy the result of which could only be described a magical”
– John O’Regan (contributor Rough Guide to Irish Music)

“You have to admire We Banjo 3. Each project or recording they make continues to impress. There is a run of 5 tracks on the second half of the album that is simply outstanding…..This is a great live recording that captures the energy and interaction of the band at their best, and it comes highly recommended.

“The way that all musicians are on the same wavelength and communicate with each other is simply amazing. This Live album gives you a very happy feeling”

“Having recently discovered banjo 3 I’d like to say that this is one band worth discovering. As you listen to their music, it captures you, doesn’t let go and makes you want to hear more”
– The Irish Connection with Sean Green, CMR Nshville Radio

“On the main stage on Saturday night, there was an atmospheric splendour about the performance by We Banjo 3. The two sets of brothers who make up We Banjo 3 (yes, there’s four of ‘em!) worked wonders mixing traditional Irish sounds with cutting edge banjo-powered bluegrass Americana. Believe me, live they’re as excellent as their acclaimed ‘Gather The Good’ CD suggested”
– Live review of Gate to Southwell Festival, UK. June 2015
