One trip across the sea inspired founder Jason Marc Pierce to bring this music back to the states and gather others along the way to continue to enhance the sound of what is now known as Banna.
Brought together to bring Celtic music to all good people, Banna is quickly becoming the favorite pub band in the Triad and beyond.
Banna (which means “the band” in Gaelic) counts among its members:
Jason Marc Pierce: vocals, guitar, pennywhistle, kilt
Ken Ashford: percussion, good-natured sarcasm
Cris Mudd: vocals, artistic-ness, occasional bucket player
Jaye Pierce: vocals, guitar, talking
Zachary Messick: mandolin, guitar, youth
Vance D. Archer III: fiddle, bouzouki, dance intensifier
Kenny Love: bassist, Guinness
Chris Binkowski: mandolin, cello, fiddle
