JigJam are a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the midlands in 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 virtuoso musical ability has captivated audiences throughout the world.  Jamie McKeogh, Cathal Guinan and Daithi Melia all hail from Tullamore, Co.Offaly with Co. Tipperary born Gavin Strappe completing the quartet. All four members 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 unique style of music influenced by American Folk music whilst staying true to their Irish roots. Described as "The best Irish group so far in bluegrass,"  this sharply dressed ceathairéad {4-some} deliver an energy-fueled, foot-stomping live performance. All multi-instrumentalists, JigJam interchange between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins and double bass onstage which creates an experience which is pleasing to both the eye and the ear. JigJam have recorded two studio albums to critical acclaim as well as a live album  LIVE IN TULLAMORE 2017. They have made a huge impact on the Irish American circuit performing as a headline act at all the major festivals including the world-renowned Tellruide Bluegrass Festival and Milwaukee Irish Fest as well as touring various parts of the UK and Europe.
