The band started playing in 2002, testing out different names and musicians before finding the perfect setup: the Irish Gigglers were born! Their sound is driven by six passionate musicians that have joined forces to share their love of the ever so "distinctive & magical" music played in the pubs of the Emerald Isle.
Most of them being multi-instrumentalists, no less than nine instruments can be heard! Flutes, Bodhran, Guitar, Mandolin, Melodeon, Fiddle, Banjo, Bagpipe, Bass, Percussions… all of which will surely bring you closer to Ireland's shores as the music unfolds!
They have fine-tuned their music through passion and hard-work to comfortably sit in that specific boundary between respecting the traditional and giving it a modern kick! That balance has become their identity, with influences such as the Churchfitters, De Danann, the Dubliners, the Pogues, Altan, Lunasa, The Corrs or U2 to name a few.
Listen to their demo and decide for yourself.
The Reels, jigs, Rebels songs, hornpipes (dancing), ballads, Celtic folk, all of these will transport you at each concert from a world of moorlands, peat, nostalgia, into the heat of battles, storms, and ultimately freedom! Smiles, giggles and good beer are of course part of the journey! Enjoy a true Irish night!
The band is based in the Herault department (south of France), and performs at all sorts of events (cafes, bars, weddings and festivals).
