FOLK supergroup of sorts The Jigantics play The Merchants Inn next month.

The five piece feature Martin Fitzgibbon and Marion Fleetwood from ColvinQuarmby and Mark Cole, Rick Edwards and Ade Deane from Sons Of The Delta.

The Jigantics blend musical genres to reflect their own diverse interests, but within the framework of their shared passion for new folk music. They draw inspiration from folk music of different continents and cultures to serve up a musical roots stew of folk, blues, and country.

Between them the Jigantics have played most of the major festivals in the UK, USA and Europe, including Cropredy, and Cambridge on these shores.

David Francis, of Nailsea Folk Club, recently welcomed the group.

He said: "The Jigantics were brilliant. A refreshing and varied blend of uptempo songs and beautifully arranged ballads. Great instrumentation from very talented musicians delivered by a band who had presence.They worked hard to build a strong rapport with the audience. The result; a really enjoyable night with people feeling uplifted having been part of something quite special."

They play The Merchants Inn on Little Church Street on March 18. Tickets, priced £9, are available from Rugby music shop Sounds - now situated behind the Squirrel Inn in Church Street - direct from Rugby Roots by calling 01788 567338 or online via www.rugbyroots.com. The gig starts at 8.30pm.
