Like the purest Irish whiskey — simultaneously smooth and a kick-in-the-pants — JigJam blends traditional Irish folk music with bluegrass and Americana to deliver precision with a punch. Propelled by onstage energy and virtuoso ability, the four multi-instrumentalists from the Midlands draw comparisons to The Punch Brothers and have been called “the best Irish group so far in bluegrass.” Fueled by guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin and double bass, the lads harness the Celtic music of their youth and outfit it with a heaping helping from the hollers. Catch these award-winning, rising stars of Celtgrass on their way up. You’ll have a seat, but with these foot-stomping tunes, you may not want to use it.
JigJam is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
