Jiggerty - about the band

We play a range of traditional Irish, Scottish, English and American dance tunes (jigs, reels, polkas etc) - hear our sound and see us in action in the Gallery


We are available as a 3 piece band (caller/whistle, tenor banjo/mandolin, guitar) or as a 4 piece with additional fiddle.  If there is another traditional instrument you would like in the band, such as bodhran, do ask - this is usually possible via our contacts with other local musicians.

We use modern, well-maintained PA equipment which is checked for electrical safety (including PAT test) and we hold Public Liability Insurance with a £5 million limit - venues often expect both of these requirements of the band you engage. 

Jiggerty - Eleanor (caller/whistle)
Jiggerty - Mike (banjo/mandolin)

Eleanor & Mike form the core of the band, being married to each other and sharing the administration and transportation of our PA equipment.  Mike has been involved in the Bristol/Bath Irish music scene for over 30 years.  Eleanor has been calling and playing whistle in Jiggerty for over 15 years.

Jiggerty - Chris (guitar)

Chris provides a driving and innovative guitar backing


We regularly work with fiddle players and other local musicians that can be added into the band as required
