The Irish Rovers with We Banjo 3
February 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20.50 – $49.50
Follow the trail of rollicking and rousing Irish tunes alongside two generations of musical ambassadors from the Emerald Isle.
Fueled by passion, talent, history, and song, the musical legacy of the Irish Rovers continues to lead the way for many of today’s folk and Celtic musicians. After nearly 50 years of charming and entertaining audiences around the world with their exciting stage shows and traditional approach to Irish music, the Rovers’ Long Goodbye Tour sees them singing a proper farewell to all those they have entertained through the decades with signature tunes like “The Unicorn” and “Drunken Sailor.”
Joining this veteran troupe are some of the most celebrated young musicians in Ireland today. We Banjo 3 delivers a groundbreaking mixture of Irish music and old-time American and bluegrass influences with remarkable virtuosity and passion. This award-winning quartet blends the skills and strengths of the Flecktones with a bit of Punch Brothers and adds a dash of Gaelic Storm to create one of the best live acts to come out of Ireland in recent years.
“[The Rovers’] songs have become anthems of revelry and joy among generation after generation of fans.” – Belfast Telegraph
“[We Banjo 3 are] ultra-talented Irish performers [who] deliver hallowed musical traditions from Ireland and America with a freshness and finesse bordering on magical.” -The Wall Street Journal
