Jiggered Ceilidh Band have had a phenomenal 2009. It's been our busiest year yet. Perhaps we should treat ourselves to a "Ceilidh Lager" by William Bros. It's on a shortlist of 15 beers in Sainsbury's 2009 Beer Competition!
During the epic year that was 2009:
-we launched our new website (thanks to the guys at Atomised for this- it's generating lots of business for us)
-we made a few important gear purchases (including a new mixer and our cool banner stands)
-we travelled to London for a gig (great roadtrip)
-we were asked to play in France (twice) and the USA (maybe in 2010)
-we introduced some new tunes (that have gone down well with our fans)
Anyway, I'm off to enjoy my Ceilidh Lager!!

It's official...Jenny is the most die-hard member of Jiggered Ceilidh Band. My wife is expecting our third child- she is being induced to deliver on Friday, so I will have to miss my 2nd ceilidh in 7 years. So Jenny moves into pole position, having missed only 1 ceilidh in Jiggered's history! Well done Jenny! Yipee-ki-yay!!!

Jiggered Ceilidh Band were playing at Craighalbert again- this time for Joy and Mike's wedding. We have been playing regularly here during 2009- and have one more gig left! Hogmanay at Craighalbert will be Jiggered's last of 2009. Looking forward to that one too.
Joy and Mike looked like they had a great time.They were ideal clients, very appreciative and relaxed on their big day. We wish them well for their marriage.
I was checking my phone after each dance to make sure that my wife, Elaine, hadn't gone into labour as she is expecting our third child and is now 3 days overdue....
