Knockengorroch 2024 Artists - Jiginaboot (photo imagyarweddings.com)

We are thrilled to welcome Jiginaboot for a ceilidh in the Knockengorroch meadow!

Based in Peebles in the Scottish Borders, Jiginaboot Ceilidh Band (Jiginaboot) has been playing at parties, weddings, festivals and public events for over a decade.

With a driving, acoustic, energetic and often intricate traditional folk sound, the band will lead you through all the familiar Scottish ceilidh dances… plus a few extra special additions! Listen carefully and in between the Scottish and Irish tunes you might just spot a klezmer freilach, a French bourrée, a Hungarian reel or even an Arabic percussion solo… for Jiginaboot, a ceilidh is all about great tunes, toe-tapping rhythms and – most importantly – dancers who know how to have a good time!

Is it a while since you’ve ceilidh-ed? Perhaps you have never been to one before? Or do you know your steps back to front and upside down? If so then Jiginaboot has played for dancers like you many times before! Join them for a Sunday afternoon knees-up in The Shieling!

We are excited to welcome our first featured Sámi artist at Knockengorroch Festival 2024! ⚡️ Inhabiting the lands of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia (Sápmi) the Sámi are indigenous people of Europe, traditionally known for their semi nomadic reindeer herding. 🦌Kajsa Balto has established herself as one of the central voices within her generation of musicians from Sápmi. Her approach to yoik, the Sámi singing tradition, and her intuitive way of working across genres, has garnered glowing reviews. She merges ancestral knowledge and modernity, leaving listeners eager for more! 💥Her performance will be accompanied by a workshop, an opportunity to hear more about her culture and the yoik tradition. 🎶More info and video on our website 👉 www.knockengorroch.org.uk/artist/kajsa-balto/ ...
