JigJam

March 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

JigJam performing live at The Kate

When virtuoso Irish playing jumps the pond running naked through the wide open fields of bluegrass/Americana JigJam is born. Bluegrass and American Folk music originated from their homes and now JigJam are here to take it back!

JigJam made their Grand Ole Opry Debut in Nashville in March 2023 to critical acclaim receiving a standing ovation from a sold out crowd on Country Music’s biggest stage. They were joined on the night by Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Steve Earle, Lauren Alaina and many more. This Offaly and Tipperary born band have started The first wave of attack in the new Irish invasion of Americana.

‘Foot stomping’, ‘high energy’ and lots of badass is what you’re in for when you see this musical powerhouse live in concert.

Founding members from Offaly Jamie McKeogh (Lead singer and guitar) and Daithi Melia (5 String Banjo and Dobro) were joined by Tipperary born Gavin Strappe (Mandolin and Tenor Banjo) in 2016. This year they are joined by Danny Hunter (Fiddle) to make up this iGrass (Irish Bluegrass) quartet.

Described as ‘The best Irish band in bluegrass’ and ‘sparkling, infectious’ these lads have been hailed as ‘Ireland’s answer to New Grass Revival’ Bluegrass has it’s roots in Irish music and Irish immigration. iGrass and JigJam is what happens when the Irish find their prodigal son.
