ANN ARBORThe Ark is hosting its annual Fall Fundraiser this weekend to ensure that music will continue to live on in the intimate local music club.

Titled A Virtual Evening with We Banjo 3, the event kicks off on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Acoustic Café's Rob Reinhart will MC the event, which is presented by Merrill Lynch Mueting Lyczak Group with support from ann arbor’s 107one, Detroit Metro Times and WEMU.

After the Ann Arbor Folk Festival, the Fall Fundraiser is The Ark’s second largest fundraiser each year. We Banjo 3 is an Irish quartet made up of two sets of brothers, Enda and Fergal Scahill, and Martin and David Howley. The last time the group played at The Ark was in March, right before the coronavirus pandemic shutdown and subsequent suspension of live music shows.

The virtual evening will include a live performance and interview with the band, as well as never-before-released footage of We Banjo 3′s 2019 live album recording at The Ark.
