    Jiggy

    More of a collective than an orthodox band, Jiggy’s mercurial line up mixes and melds Irish traditional music, world rhythms and cutting-edge dance grooves.

    In 2017 ground-breaking collective Jiggy released their debut album, 'Translate', which Folk Radio UK Magazine described as 'an exceptional and intoxicating album that will find its way into the heart and soul of an ever increasing audience’.  

    In September 2018 Jiggy took the internet by storm with their video ‘Silent Place' celebrating the global togetherness of dance and to date it has clocked up more than 35 million views online. This introduced the band to a brand new audience worldwide and their debut album ‘Translate’ went to number 1 in the world music charts in Ireland, United States, Canada, France, Australia, Poland & UK making them a big hit with festival audiences across the globe.  

    Jiggy followed 'Translate' by releasing' Hypernova’. In 2020, they continued exploring the tradition of their musical ancestors while bringing a whole new exotic flavour to the table. 'Hypernova' also reached number 1 in the world music charts.  

    Jiggy are currently working on their third album which will be released in June 2022.
