Irish band We Banjo 3 to perform at 17th annual La Crosse Irishfest

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — The 17th annual La Crosse Irishfest is on its way.

We Banjo 3 — a band from Galway, Ireland — is one of many groups performing at the festival.

The group has toured the United States for the last ten years.

One of the members says they plan to celebrate the anniversary by putting on a great show for La Crosse.

“The La Crosse crowd are a crazy bunch of people,” said Fergal Scahill. “We’re guaranteed a good time when we get there and as usual our show will be full of dancing and sing-a-longs and just generally a great party.”

We Banjo 3’s last two records reached number one on Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums charts.

The group released their newest album a couple of weeks ago called ‘Open The Road’.
