Now Playing at McGurk’s January 31st – February 25th
JigJam are the hottest new act on the Celtgrass music scene. They 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) Cathal Guinan (Double Bass, fiddle and vocals) and Gavin strappe (Mandolin, tenor banjo & 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.
