Identity Folk Night : Reely Jiggered

Reely Jiggered have been causing a stir nationally with their incredible blend of Traditional and Contemporary Music.

The dynamic three piece ceilidh band formed in 2008 has already made their mark having played in many venues including Hafton Castle, The Tall Ship Glenlee, Gig on the Green, Glasgow University Union and performing for the Royal Scottish Academy of Music Ball, Cultural Events for the Egyptian and Bangladeshi communities, as well as weddings, birthdays, corporate and charity events. Their fresh and lively approach to Traditional music is innovative, incorporates many ethnic styles and appeals to a large audience.

Not only has the band been hailed a success, but the individual members themselves are successful soloists. Between them, the three members have performed throughout the UK, Europe and America. Such events include: the Opening of the Scottish Parliament, BBC Proms in the Park, appearances on Spanish, Mexican and Bangladeshi Television as well as broadcasts on Radio MOD, BBC Scotland and BBC Radio 3. 

You can see Reely Jiggered perform at the Inverclyde Folk Club / Identity night on Friday 17 June in the Loreto Club. Doors open 7.30. In the meantime, there's not nearly enough of this clip...
