"Here's an Irish band that's going to impact the world as hard as Clancy Brothers or U2 if they get only half a chance." —Midwest Records.
Jamie McKeogh, Cathal Guinan, Daithi Melia, and Gavin Strappe all grew up immersed in Irish traditional music and culture, which is reflected by the band collectively achieving over twenty All-Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann competitions. The quartet’s unique style is influenced by American folk music while staying true to their Irish roots. The band delivers an energy-fueled, foot-stomping live performance. All the artists of JigJam are multi-instrumentalists, interchanging between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins, and double bass onstage.
