One of the UK and Nu Folk music’s most arresting 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 musicianship. In this case its a genre defying mix of Roots, Blues, Traditional 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.
One of The Jigantics great strengths is their ability to combine the power and energy of a five piece band and the vulnerable sound of a solo performance all in one show and make it work so well. 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.
