The band are multi-instrumentalists who frequently swap instruments on stage throughout their set and share lead vocals, as well as four-part harmonies.
At a recent festival, The Daily Telegraph described them as “a roots-driven country band who were a high class, highlight act”
The Jigantics have released two albums. Daisy Roots in 2013 followed by “Seconds Out” in 2016. Their third album, “Are We There Yet” was released on July 1st 2017. The title is a reference to the bands’ efforts to constantly push the musical barriers and explore the opportunities that Americana and Roots music offer.
