Jig to a Milestone
Jig to a Milestone is a Celtic folk duo hailing from the nation's oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida. Their unconventional instrumentation and eclectic song list makes for a unique and rich listening experience. They cover all your favorite ballads, pub classics, instrumentals, sea shanties, and the occasional bawdy tune. Jason Catron is the voice and rhythm of the group. He plays a barrage of stringed instruments including guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandocello, tenor banjo, and mandolin. Tearing through jigs at a breakneck speed, Jason's fingers of fire take flight on his handy tin whistle. His rich, lilting baritone fills the air with the purestt tone that will make you believe you’re kissing the Blarney Stone! Victoria Van Arnam plays the Hammered Dulcimer and she’s the cornerstone of their signature sound. Her tiny wooden hammers dance over the strings to produce haunting melodies and rousing choruses. The delightful ambiance of the dulcimer is not one to be missed!
