Jiggered Ceilidh Band Entertain Maths Troops!

The Grange Academy Maths Camps are legendary. This year's weekend at Gartmore House was the biggest ever with 96 Higher/Advanced Higher students coming along with their enthusiastic teachers. They're a great bunch and it's always a highlight for us to play at this one each year. 

This year was pretty special for Jiggered too. Jiggered formed in 2002. After 10 glorious years, the inimitable Jenny left us. The next 5 years, we had a blast with Emma as our talented front woman. We're so grateful as a band for all of the adventures we've had with these two friends over the years.

A new Jiggered era kicked off last night with Gemma. She was calling dances like a pro. And just wait till you hear her voice! 

I'll leave you with a joke shared by one of the Maths geeks last night: "The doctor prescribed me anti barn-dance pills. He said I've not to exceed the prescribed dosey-dosage......"

Jiggered Ceilidh Band nearly snowed in at Peebles Hydro wedding!

Ross and Jo had heard Jiggered at Hogmanay a few years ago and knew they wanted us to play at their wedding! They booked us up for their wedding at Peebles Hydro. It was an intimate affair with a few of their friends and family gathering to celebrate the big day! 

The couple had chosen Goo Goo Dolls "Boxes" for their first dance and it was a nice one to add to our repertoire! The choreographed dance went down well with the crowd...

Jen and Gemma completed the line-up for the evening and meant we had a five-piece for a wee change, featuring three part harmonies during the evening! 

With several inches of snow forming during the evening, the hotel manager spoke to us about staying over but we decided to give the journey home a go. Thankfully we all made it home safe and sound! 

Next ceilidh: MATHS CAMP.
