One of the UK and Nu Folk music’s most arresting new bands, The Jigantics are part of a growing group of contemporary artists appealing to a wide range of music followers who are increasingly looking beyond conventional musical stereotypes, and just enjoying a fusion of great songs, stunning harmonies and fine muscianship.
In this case its a genredefying mix of Roots, Blues, Trad, Country and then some. “Love the new sounds! It’s really different. I can’t place the style exactly but it will certainly appeal to a wide range of people” Michaela Pape – Southsea Folk & Blues Festival.
Fantastic music…highlight act
The Daily Telegraph
One of The Jigantics great strengths is their ability to combine the power and energy of a five piece band, demonstrated here on ‘The Save’ alongside a stripped bare, dark ‘love’ song such as ‘The Willow’.
Its a pretty neat trick and in live performance they carry the audience with them on a journey of foot stomping joy tempered with only the occasional heartbreak. Seeing them live it’s clear that this band believe having a good time is an essential ingredient to any gig, ensuring that the road travelled overwhelmingly ends in a smile.
