Jig Jam on the Wild Rose Moon Radio Hour

The Wild Rose Moon Radio Hour is a fun theatrical event recorded with a live audience in the rathskeller of Wild Rose Moon Performing Arts Center.  The show features an announcer, a host, a music producer, a featured musical guest, a visiting local performer, and game show tied to the biography of the featured musicians.  The show is recorded and edited by Nate Butler from Nimble Wit Productions & the Shiny, Shiny Black Band.   It airs on WVPE, 88.1 and WTCA 1050 AM and 106.1 FM.  Attendees are urged to come early to register for the game show and get a seat before taping begins at 11 AM.  JigJam are a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the midlands in Ireland. Blending the best of traditional Irish music with Bluegrass and Americana in a new genre which has been branded as 'I-Grass' (Irish influenced Bluegrass), their onstage energy along with their virtuosic musical ability has captivated audiences throughout the world.

"Here's an Irish band that's going to impact the world as hard as Clancy Brothers or U2 if they get only half a chance." MIDWEST RECORDS Jamie McKeogh, Cathal Guinan and Daithi Melia all hail from Tullamore, Co.Offaly with Co. Tipperary born Gavin Strappe completing the quartet. All four members grew up immersed in Irish traditional music and culture which is reflected by the band collectively achieving over twenty All-Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann competitions. They have now developed their own unique style of music influenced by American Folk music whilst staying true to their Irish roots. Described as 'The best Irish group so far in bluegrass' this sharply dressed outfit deliver an energy-fuelled, foot-stomping live performance. All multi-instrumentalists, JigJam interchange between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins and double bass onstage which creates an experience which is pleasing to both the eye and the ear.
JigJam have recorded two studio albums (OH BOY. 2014 & HELLO WORLD 2016) to critical acclaim as well as a live album (LIVE IN TULLAMORE 2017). They have made a huge impact on the Irish American circuit performing as a headline act at all the major festivals including the world-renowned Milwaukee Irish Fest as well as touring various parts of the UK and Europe. "The words sparkling, innovative and infectious come first to mind, beyond that you get into an unadulterated display of accomplished musicianship, skill and talent'." FOLKWORDS.
