streamed on folkfest.org

In 2013, Philadelphia local bassist and musician, Michele Lynn lost her son to suicide. Beginning in 2014 with the 2nd annual Winter Doldrums, Michele changed the focus of the event to benefit suicide prevention and awareness. In it’s ninth year, the Winter Doldrums is once again benefitting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

In 2016, With the goal of bringing light to suicide awareness and prevention, Michele teamed up with 17 of her musician friends to co-write songs based on her works. Michele’s poems became the songs’ lyrics, with her friends providing voice and melody. Together with producer Ross Bellenoit, Michele and her friends created an album called “Vilomahed.” Despite the album’s diverse musical lineup, Michele and her collaborators have created a cohesive work that provides a beautiful glimpse into the pain and healing experienced by survivors of suicide, that is at times both heartbreaking and hopeful.

Performing at this year’s event will be: Dar Williams, Tim Reynolds, Chris Kasper, Andrew Lipke, Tin Bird Choir, John Faye, Kuf Knotz & Christine Elise, Ginger Coyle, Chris “Griz” Grunwald, Matt Duke, Andrea Nardello, Christine Havrilla, The Winterlings, Hinton Bower & Jones, Ross Bellenoit & Andrea Weber, Christopher Davis Shannon, Rev TJ McGlinchey, Dani Mari, Michele Lynn, Sonja Sofya, Emily Drinker, Vilebred, Valentina Sounds, Marion Halliday, Paul Wilkinson, Sarah and the Arrows, Aly Cat, John Galla, and The Elder Meowers

We Banjo 3 performed for a sold out crowd at the CCA in February 2019, filling the main theatre with an energy that brought people to their feet and dancing in the aisles. Mix the Flecktones with the Punch Brothers and Chieftains, along with a dash of Mumford & Sons, and you have the music created by Martin Howley, David Howley, Enda Scahill and Fergal Scahill.

Recognized with multiple awards, We Banjo 3 has established themselves as a force in the Celtic and Bluegrass world. They are now making their way into mainstream music with their Celtgrass sound that blends Celtic, Bluegrass, Country and Americana with the soul of Folk music.
