Watch the new JigJam video in advance of the release of 'Hello World' on 22nd October

JigJam have just released a new video as a taster of their new album Hello World which will be released tomorrow 22nd October. 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).

They attract a wider audience than just trad people and in a recent conversation with the band they explained: “The fact that we incorporate real hard driving bluegrass definitely broadens our audience as it reaches into American fields and beyond. Also our incorporation of modern popular songs attracts the general music lover in Ireland rather than just the trad head which is important to us. We would play predominantly songs in our set with some tunes here and there, which again attracts a larger audience as truly only real trad lovers will listen to tunes for a full gig. As a result I think we can try and spread our wings further than just trad circles, well that's the plan anyways!”
