With Emma away for the weekend, the stage was set for Ellyn to make her Jiggered debut. It was a lively ceilidh with loads of pupils from the Milngavie Primary (the school the PTA were raising money for). Ellyn has been working with hordes of students across East Ayrshire recently and this experience was really clear as she expertly guided this enthusiastic bunch through the dances.
We've played this one year after year and love it. The young people were pleading for autographs and asking if we had an album out!
Ewan was back on form, winning fudge in the tombola!
There are a few dates in March and April we're offering discounts for. If you're looking for a last minute ceilidh, give us a shout.

Jiggered were in action in the Kay Park Parish Church Halls for the 37th Henderson Scouts. Some of the young men are off to Namibia during the summer - it was our pleasure to play at this fundraiser.
Jiggered's piano player Chris (better known as "Mr Smith" in Kilmarnock) knew a few of the ceilidhers and raffle salesman Scott ensured Mr S ended up with raffle ticket "314" as a tribute to pi. Unfortunatley, this didn't win any prizes!
Fiona had organised the event- the buffet featured rolls and sausage (always a hit) and bowls of mushy peas (this might be a "Jiggered" first).
Watch out for a few opportunities to snap up a cut-price last minute ceilidh....we'll be posting these on our website and Facebook page soon!
