Description

The new release from Galway crossover giants, We Banjo 3. String Theory - the interaction of [musical] particles in space. The pure drop distilled. A heady mountain brew. Galway wild flagstones weaving smoky trails through Appalachian hills. Music moves the morning mist rising. This is Ireland. This is America. We Banjo 3 are the most virtuosic, innovative quartet to emerge from Ireland in decades. They have long established their reputation for combining strikingly brilliant music with euphoric live performances. Now the band release their fourth album, String Theory, at once redefining the boundaries of tradition and in the process, transcending genre. This album is an exploration of the timeless interaction of Irish and American music, the intertwined particles constantly changing, colliding, interacting with each other. Music cannot simply be defined as a singular point in time but a dance of traditions. This record connects ancient songs, new songs, old tunes mined from both traditions, new tunes composed and influenced by the journey between the two - a perfect harmony of the folk roots music of two great musical nations. 12 tracks recorded at Sonas Studios on the side of a mountain in Co.Kerry and then mastered in LA, this has a truly international groove. Exciting guest appearances by Grammy winner Alison Brown, Aoife Scott and Trevor Hutchinson, and a brass section from Ohio, round out the sound. This is a truly unique album.
