Jiggered are a 4-piece Scottish ceilidh band and we’re immensely fond of our wee country’s musical heritage. You’ll pick that up from the moment you hear us. With a line-up of guitar, keyboard, fiddle, drums and vocals, we take some of Scotland’s most beloved traditional tunes, often blended with your favourite pop crowdpleasers, and create the contemporary Jiggered sound that has been adored by crowd after crowd for the past 20 years. From Gay Gordons to Strip The Willow, Proud Mary to 500 Miles, and Caledonia to Auld Lang Syne, Jiggered bring a contemporary twist to traditional Scottish music. We’ve provided the soundtrack to hundreds of special occasions across the UK and beyond, so you can trust us to strike the right chord with you and your guests. With an impressive range of ceilidh dances and covers, it’s our passion to provide you with a unique and unforgettable evening of live entertainment - “who’s that band?!” moments, guaranteed. If ‘Loch Lomond’ isn’t on repeat in your heads as you travel home afterwards, we’re not happy… Check out the videos above for a glimpse of what we do best. Like what you hear? Get in touch and we’ll take care of the rest. We have been bringing ceilidh dances to events across Scotland, the UK and Ireland since 2002 and with a number of crowd-pleasing cover sets in our repertoire, it is fair to say we are well rehearsed for every occasion and can tailor our performances to your exact requirements. We perform regularly in Glasgow and Edinburgh and are available to hire for celebrations and events in these two cities or further afield around Scotland or beyond. Some of the types of events we can play at: - WEDDINGS Nothing brings people together like a Scottish ceilidh. - CHARITY FUNDRAISERS Make it a night to remember for a good cause. - FAMILY CELEBRATIONS Whether it is a birthday party, wedding anniversary or Scottish reunion, we have just the music for you! - SEASONAL FESTIVITIES Burns Night, Christmas and Hogmanay are just some of the occasions best celebrated with a ceilidh! Jiggered is one of Scotland’s leading wedding ceilidh bands and we are proud to have celebrated the special day of hundreds of couples in a variety of venues over the years. From ancient Irish castles to state-of-the-art function suites, our set-up caters for venues of all shapes, styles and sizes. Of course, a wedding is a highly personal affair and we strive to accommodate specific requests in our sets, which can be tailored to mix traditional Scottish dances with classic well-loved covers that are sure to get the crowd going! We are often asked to learn a live version of the bride and groom’s first dance and we are always honoured to do so. Whether you’re all set to book us, or simply want to ask a few questions, we’d love to hear from you. Just click the "Check availability" or "Message" buttons, complete the short form, and we’ll be in touch in no time.

We hired Jiggered Ceilidh Band to play at our wedding in June 2022 and we cannot recommend them enough! Chris was so easy to communicate with and so helpful when arranging the day. On the night, the whole band made sure we all had a fantastic time and that the dance floor was full – they were so good at encouraging everyone to get up and join in! We had such great feedback from our guests. We loved that they performed covers of well-known songs in their own style as well as performing the classic ceilidh tunes. It was a bonus that they had learnt our first dance song as this made it feel so personal to us. Thank you to you all for helping to make our day so special!
