This week’s encore broadcast of Mountain Stage will start Friday, June 2, 2023. This re-broadcast is from our 2022 fall season, and features Ireland’s We Banjo 3, Memphis’ modern soul band Southern Avenue, eclectic rock band Cordovas, Canadian acoustic blues belter Matt Andersen, and the folk-rock diva from New Orleans, Lilli Lewis.

Ireland’s progressive roots group We Banjo 3 made their second appearance on Mountain Stage during this visit. The Galway, Ireland, and Nashville-based quartet––comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley, the band incorporates banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and percussion beside strong choruses and melodic hooks, to create their buzz-worth live shows.

Our Song of the Week is the band’s performance of “Garden Song,” which is included on their album Open The Road.

Hear the entire set from We Banjo 3, plus performances by Southern Avenue, Cordovas, Matt Andersen and Lilli Lewis, starting this Friday, June 2 on these public radio stations.
