We Banjo 3, Altan and Dervish In Japan!
Think Irish trad isn’t universal? Well, it most surely is. Here’s some proof. We Banjo 3, Dervish and Altan returned right before Christmas from an incredibly successful tour of Japan. Incredibly! In many cases, they played to audiences of thousands. Irish traditional music is huge in Japan. And, in case you think the audiences were all western ex-pats, guess again! Enda Scahill of We Banjo 3 tells us over 90% of each audience was Japanese. Stunning! The Japanese know great music when they hear it! In this video, We Banjo is with Humbert Humbert. Tons of Japanese musicians learning their lessons on trad. GREAT!!!!
