We bring you original music, fired with energy & passion, reflecting our varied influences!

Our music is original but enjoyable and accessible by all ages and tastes. We play mainly pub gigs and festivals - festivals and recording are our main focus.

Rigadoo! formed in September 2008 when Mike Edwards left the Outcast Band to perform his own songs. The album "Follow The River" was quickly conceived - the initial challenge was whether to include Mike's more acoustic, political and humorous material, which he'd played in folk clubs and pubs, or whether to go for a band sound and to work on the more serious material.

Some early production work with Lyndon Webb in his studio convinced us that we deserved a band production, and the Rigadoo! project took shape in November 2009.

Mike and Lyndon were joined in the studio by Sam Jones. Good friends Jane Pearl & Mike Mullan (from 1 Two Many) were recruited to supply more vocals, at which point we had a veritable powerhouse line-up, capable of mixing it with the best at festivals & big gigs. We hope to see you soon at a pub or festival near you!
