WAMU 88.5 : The Kojo Nnamdi Show

Time For Three

They've been described as a classically trained trio with a garage band mentality. With two violins and a double bass, they bend genres, incorporating jazz, pop and bluegrass into their music. We hear from Time for Three, young musicians who aim to introduce their distinctive classical sound to new audiences.

Time for Three performs their original song, "Banjo Love." Double bass player Ranaan Meyer says he was inspired to compose the piece while imagining what acclaimed banjo player Bela Fleck would do if confronted with the world's largest banjo.

Time for Three plays a rendition of Mumford & Son's hit song, "Little Lion Man."

We are Time for Three and this is our story -- the story of so many kids who every day face challenges to who they are and who they want to be: their dreams, their ambitions, their identity. This video is for you guys. Be strong. Stick with it. We did, and we are stronger for it.

Presented in partnership with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center.
