Reely Jiggered, 02 ABC Winners of SoundWave Music Competition 2014, are bursting with talent, alive with creativity and live to perform. They are inspired by Celtic Folk music, intrigued by World beats and melodies and drawn to an interesting and unique fusion of funk, rock, pop and jazz taking folk music to new heights.
To go to one of their gigs is to be taken on a journey through the streets of Mexico, the salsa clubs of Cuba, the furious fiddling of gypsies, and haunting melodies of Celtic Britain mixed with the soaring voice of a diva soprano, the beauty of acoustic instruments, revved up by driving bass lines, wah wah pedals and rocked up rhythms.
As one of Scotland’s most interesting and entrepreneurial bands they have performed at International Festivals including Celtival Festival in Italy, Celtic Connections, Schotten Radio's T @ the Tower (Germany), Musica en Verano (Mexico), Cowal Highland Gathering, Lomond Festival, Roots Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Tall Ships Races; as well as appearing at top venues such as Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Oran Mor, Cosmovitral (Mexico), The Lyre (Tokyo) and Minami Aizu Concert Hall (Japan).
Their self-titled debut album, released in 2011 to critical acclaim, has received airplay in Australia, Germany, Mexico and America and has been featured on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Scotland. Their second album "Kaleidoscope" was “Album of the Week” in September 2014 on Celtic Music Radio with Alan Grant describing it as “such a stunning collection of music by the most talented of musicians. It’s a while since I’ve been so excited about an album that I feel will live forever…”
