In 2014, Jarosz joined forces with Sara Watkins and Aoife O’Donovan to form the acclaimed Grammy winning folk trio I’m With Her.

The Galway, Ireland and Nashville-based quartet, We Banjo 3 is coming to the SteelStacks on Sunday, January 16, 2022. The group, comprised of two sets of brothers Enda and Fergal Scahill and Martin and David Howley, converges the shared and varied traditions of Americana, bluegrass and Celtic music to create a truly unique signature sound. Actor, comedian and musician Steve Martin says of the band, “We Banjo 3…are making waves…here in America. They are playing the banjo in a style that I didn’t even know could be played like that.”
