Jiggle The Old Bones by Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer
It’s only February, but maybe you have noticed a little bit of spring in your step the last couple of days? It could very well be because with the new month, we also have chosen a new Monthly Marker, and hearing this track it is very hard to sit still and not let your mood be lifted! For a full month, Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer will do just that, five to six times a day, with the single Jiggle The Old Bones of their latest album Sleep Deprivation.
Released in 2020, the album was designed to keep the road-weary musician awake and safe on the late-night drive home. Somehow, that feels quite fitting to our current situation: tired of it all, but thankfully we have the right music to keep us going, accompanying us on the trip towards the better days that are bound to return.
“So let’s dance. Feel the groove, and dance, let your body move and dance, put your cares away, safe away for another day and dance, … Jiggle the old bones!” (for sure we can do with the exercise)

This album was a nice surprise in our mailbox, I have to say! Because of the electronic sounds, part of the songs are classified as “charged”, you will find those in our Spotify
CeltCast Radio – Charged list!
The other tracks we started to play on CeltCast Radio itself.
The songs are interpretations of traditional Danish folk tunes. If you love
and Virelai songs AND you love a bit more power in acoustic music, then you definitely should listen to this party. The album contains a booklet with 14 funny pages. You will find lyrics and drawings in it. This album is very suitable for Balfolk dancing! My favourite song is: Lejerdrengen, Engelsholm.
