Jiggered Ceilidh Band
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Jiggered were absolutely incredible at our wedding at Neidpath Castle in June. With a very diverse mix of people, most of whom had never even heard of Ceilidh before, the band made it seem like the room were experts (after a wee bit of encouragement)! We had the most fantastic time and all of our guests absolutely LOVED it. A special thanks as well to the band who with only a couple weeks notice learned our first dance song and played it perfectly. We couldn't ask for anything more from Jiggered. We had a packed danc efloor all night with huge smiles all round. 🕺💃 Absolutely recommended if you want an epic night! Thanks so much to Chris & Crew!"
