Celtic Grass JigJam

Celtic Grass JigJam

They’re out of Co. Offaly and they are terrific. JigJam by name. Three young guys who are, by many lights, the next step in the Irish/Bluegrass/Americana wave that has swept Irish music and Irish festivals recently. Make no mistake, JigJam is primarily bluegrass-and the best bluegrass band ever out of Ireland. But, they are more. Irish trad is, of course, all over their music. How could it not be? Irish music is the parent of Bluegrass, and JigJam is Irish. Fusion!! (If you don’t hear the Irish music here, we need to get back to class.) Quite surprisingly, these three musicians quickly get to the core of Bluegrass. And they cook. Enjoy, and find their first album, Oh Boy!
