Reely Jiggered

reelyjigReely Jiggered , 02 ABC Winners of the 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.

If you could cherry pick a keyword to define Reely Jiggered’s blend of sound, I’d chose contamination. Their eclectic approach to Celtic Folk Music takes a detour to explore wildly diverse genres, including funk, rock, pop, jazz and world – going for a truly explosive and infectious feast of rhythms.

This is not merely “folk music”, but an exciting sonic journey throughout the world’s most popular folk tradition, showcasing them in all their diversity, while highlighting what they commonly share – the glue that keeps it all together.

Reely Jiggered’s aptly titled studio effort, Kaleidoscope, is a colorful release were notes, melodies and textures are free to fly in the air like confetti and ribbons: picture a bunch of drunken Celts storming a Brazilian Carnival!

The band’s song are complex, yet extremely direct, fun and relatable. 5 stars from Celtic Radio!

About The Celtic Highlander

So, you might be wondering now how did Celtic Radio come to be? What is our inspiration? Celtic Radio was created to bring together a community of listeners, performers and musicians to share and converse in Celtic culture. Our inspiration for this endeavour is the music, but let’s face it, the radio waves and TV are ruled by an endless barrage of top 40 musicians and performers. Listen to your local AM or FM band and chances are you will not find many Celtic music stations, if you find any at all! How then can the devoted musicians that play at the Irish Festivals and Highland Games ever get heard beyond that venue? How can people discover Celtic music if there is no place to listen? Hence was born the idea of a free 24 hour Celtic Radio station available on the World Wide Web for all to enjoy.
