Jigfoot play traditional dance tunes with energy, inventiveness and, above all, swing. This is music that defies you to stay still, whether it's at a dance or in a concert performance.
We specialise in tunes from southern English sources, although we play tunes from other areas of the country too. Each arrangement starts from a simple melody, with the music growing and developing organically as we respond to each others' playing.
Jigfoot play for dances, ceilidhs, barn dances and parties and work with a number of local and national callers who can tailor their dances to suit your event, catering for beginners and experienced dancers alike.
We work closely with Simon and Jo Harmer developing material based around their inspirational southern English step dancing, and can offer a flexible package including workshops, performance and social stepping sessions.
