The Jigantics are a five piece band, yes it’s going to be squeeze,  who are multi-instrumentalists who frequently swap instruments on stage throughout their set and share lead vocals, as well as four part harmonies. They have gigged extensively throughout the UK and Europe. This year they are appearing in Germany, Holland, France and in October will be a part of the five day festival, Costa Del Folk in Portugal. The Daily Telegraph recently described them as "a roots driven country band who are high class, highlight act”. Not just country the band have influences from Folk, Cajun, Zydeco, and even a touch of blues. They have released three albums, Daisy Roots in 2013 followed by "Seconds Out" in 2016. Their third, "Are we There Yet" was released on July 1st 2017. The title is a reference to the bands efforts to constantly push the musical barriers and explore the opportunities that Americana and Roots music offer. 
 “A fabulous fusion of blues, rock, folk and Americana that blew the socks off our audience. Absolute class." Steve Sheldon
"What an amazing band! The Jigantics were fantastic. No wonder the place was packed out. What an absolutely brilliant masterclass in entertainment. The whole gambit of musical styles in a one stop shop." Derry, Woodman Folk Club
