The Jigantics at Acoustic Roots Wigan
Saturday, 16th February @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
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, 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. One of The Jigantics great strengths is their ability to combine the power and energy of a four-piece band, demonstrated here on ‘The Save’ alongside a stripped bare, dark ‘love’ song such as ‘The Willow’.
It’s 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 traveled overwhelmingly ends in a smile.
Opening act: Paul Dunbar
