New recording (Nov 2011) by Houston’s new traditional Irish band.

Fifteen tracks: five songs, one air, and nine dance medleys, including two original tunes.

The Jig Is Up!

formed last year after we played a St. Pat’s gig as a ‘pickup’ band of five compatible session players. We had so much fun we decided to keep it going and see what we could build. Our goal is to play the music traditionally, while keeping it fresh with interesting arrangements and a few harmonic or melodic surprises.

Glad to see comment and a link, appreciated. Best of luck!
