Jigsaw is the premier traditional Irish band in North Texas. Performing driving reels, lilting jigs, haunting ballads, and rousing pub songs, Jigsaw is the only band in North Texas that specializes in authentic traditional Irish music. Jigsaw has been bringing an Irish flair to special events for over 25 years, performing in venues from pubs to concert halls throughout Texas and beyond. Irish traditional music, the product of a long, rich history, has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years and has been made popular by performing groups like the Chieftains, Riverdance, Clannad, and Celtic Woman. Jigsaw brings it all home and is available to book for your special occasion.
Collectively, the members of Jigsaw combine many decades of virtuosity in the distinctive sound of traditional Irish music, performing on fiddle, accordion, concertina, mandolin, tenor banjo, flute, whistle, bouzouki, guitar, and bodhran. As founders of the prestigious North Texas Irish Festival, the influence of these three musicians on Texans' appreciation of Irish music has no equal and their reputation extends across the country and even to Ireland.
Celebrating an important event? Whether it's a wedding, anniversary, birthday party, reunion, or corporate gathering, make it memorable with the addition of authentic Irish music. Jigsaw can liven up the occasion with spirited jigs and reels played on traditional Irish instruments - fiddle, accordion, flute, and whistle. With Jigsaw's extensive repertoire of upbeat songs, ballads, and sing-alongs, you and your party will feel like guests at an Irish pub.
For more intimate events, Jigsaw provides tasteful background music with enchanting airs, waltzes, and other melodies that are reminiscent of chamber music, the kind of music that was actually played in the drawing rooms of 17th-century Irish manor houses.
For an additional fee, Jigsaw can also provide Irish step dancers for your own personal "River Dance" experience or even bring along dance instructors to have everyone up and dancing a "ceili," the traditional Irish dance party. The band also supplements its sound with the addition of musicians on uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes), harps, bodhran (traditional Irish drum), and other instruments.
