Welcome to Jig & Reel

Scotland Meets Appalachia

Appalachia owes a significant part of its distinctive heritage to the arrival of Scottish immigrants in East Tennessee during the 1600s. Jenny Boyd, the owner of Boyd’s Jig & Reel, hopes to pay homage to the Scottish roots of Appalachian history. She deeply values and cherishes its remarkable Scottish history and recognizes the importance of preserving it for future generations through music.

Boyd’s Jig & Reel is a place for musicians and whisky lovers to come together and celebrate the heritage of the Scots-Irish immigrants who settled here. We celebrate and preserve the region’s heritage through musical events, whisky, and Scottish fare.
