We’re knocked out to have three amazing musicians ‘JigJam’ supporting the Kruger Brothers at the Deering 40th Anniversary Celebrations at The North Light Gallery. Huddersfield on November 7th. Just back from their much acclaimed 2015 USA tour, we’re sure in for a Celtgrass treat!
Here’s what the press are saying about JigJam.
JigJam are the hottest new act on the Celtgrass music scene. This Offaly trio have developed a new, exciting, energy-fuelled live sound blending the best of bluegrass and Irish folk music. The band comprises Jamie McKeogh (Guitar, tenor banjo and lead vocals), Daithi Melia (5 String Banjo and vocals) and Cathal Guinan (Double Bass, fiddle and vocals). JigJam’s debut album “Oh Boy!” is a tour de force of Irish and Americana music, and a brilliant representation of their live show. It has been described as “A scintillating debut album from a great bunch of young guys. JigJam are a terrific live act” by Enda Scahill of We Banjo 3. ‘JigJam are as close to authentic as you can get without having been raised on grits and fried squirrel’ Sean Laffey of Irish Music Magazine. ‘Absolutely Terrific!’ – Pat Kenny of Newstalk. Miss this band at your peril.
Here’s what our company owner Steve Noon says about JigJam.
‘I saw this amazing band on a recent trip to Galway, I was knocked out by their energy and musicianship!’ I just had to get them over to the UK to play for us at the Deering Banjos 40th Anniversary Celebration event.
