      Graham comes from a family well known for their singing and performing, which they continue to enjoy to this day. It was clear from a very early age that he had a natural ability for finding that elusive harmony and, along with his all round musical ability, has enabled him to work extensively in a variety of musical genres. The Jigs are delighted that Graham is now part of the band, and his inclusion has opened up another musical avenue for us all to enjoy.

      Lyndon is a multi-talented musician, equally at home on guitar and mandolin as he is on bass.

Needless to say he brings a wealth of experience and skill to the Jigantics – and he smiles a lot too 🙂

      Vocals, Mandolin, Squeezeboxes, Harmonica et al

      Mark is an irrepressible front man who seemingly is able to pick up almost any instrument and get an exciting noise out of it. A top vocalist and in demand international session player.

      MARINA FLORANCE

      An award-winning, exceptional singer-songwriter with a voice like chocolate whose fantastic and compelling narrative songs are completely fresh and original. A wonderful talent.

      Awards: Marina came to performing late in life, however, very soon after making the decision to “come out of the kitchen” to widen her audience she was awarded Arts Council funding, via the Escalator Project, to record a debut album, Somewhere Down The Line, using this as a platform she has since reached audiences never previously thought possible.

      The self penned song Cry won the Oldies Composers Competition, judged by BBC Radio 2 presenters including Ken Bruce, Bob Harris, Johnny Walker and the late Sir Terry Wogan, resulting in Anthony Head singing the song live on ITVs This Morning, and gaining airplay on numerous radio stations including the BBC.

      Marina was nominated on Soundcloud as Soundclouder of the day with the song The Guilty One and also added to their International Women’s Day playlist, this has resulted in thousands of plays all over the world.
