Fish´n Jigs – “What you are waiting for”
With this CD four Austrian musicians try to express their passion and love for Irish and Scottish music. Impressive ballads, jigs and reels full of spirits and modern songs of the islands take the listeners on a journey to Ireland and Scotland.
The musicians play on traditional Irish instruments such as the Tin Whistle, Low Whistle, Fiddle, Banjo, Bouzuki, Guitar and Bodhrán.
Modern songs get supported by acoustic bass and percussion.
Every “Fish“ has her/his own musical roots and with the help of their own identity and experience in different bands and ensembles they bring in new ideas and elements. For three years they have been playing and performing together as a band achieving great success.
The musical arrangements are full of variety and offer a number of surprises. Some songs put their emphasis on vocal parts for several voices, other songs impress with speed and grove.
The perfect ability of every musician to play her/his instrument and the unique personality of voices is the basis of creating the magnificent emotional genre of Celtic music. There are for example the typical male voices for rebel songs, another male voice for softer ballads and a female voice capable of interpreting nearly any type of music.
The diversity of musicians creates a very special atmosphere which can be felt at any time. And this is exactly what a lot of listeners have been waiting for.
