JigJam are a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the midlands of Ireland.

Blending the best of traditional Irish music with Bluegrass and Americana in a new genre which has been branded as ‘I-Grass’ (Irish influenced Bluegrass), their onstage energy along with their virtuosic musical ability has captivated audiences throughout the world.

The quartet, comprised of Jamie McKeogh, Cathal Guinan and Daithi Melia, 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. They have now developed their own independent style of music, influenced by American Folk music whilst staying true to their Irish roots.

All multi-instrumentalists, JigJam interchange between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins and double bass onstage, creating an experience which is pleasing to both the eye and the ear.

Described as "the best Irish group so far in bluegrass", this sharply dressed outfit deliver an energy-fuelled, foot-stomping live performance.
