Album Notes

Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee - "World Artist of the Year" and "Young Performer of the Year"
USA International Songwriting Competition Nominee

"This British Columbian Celtic fiddler is an artist that deserves to be heard. Her debut CD of Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton tunes impresses both for the lovely tone she induces from her instrument and its unhurried pacing. Pettit has an intuitive command and understanding of the material that would honor a musician of any age; for one who is just 15, it's astonishing."
- Sing Out! Magazine, USA (Summer 2010)

“An incredible fiddle player, who blew away the audience with her expertise.”
- The Celtic Connection, Canada

"A top-notch musician, and major emerging talent."
- FolkWorld Magazine, Germany

From the West Coast of Canada, JOCELYN PETTIT is a vibrant fiddler, stepdancer, singer, and composer.

First inspired by the driving energy and beauty of Cape Breton, Irish, and Scottish fiddle, and drawn to further explore the musical culture of Québec, Brittany (France), and Galicia (Spain), Jocelyn has embraced these Canadian and Celtic traditions, and delivers the music with spirited style. From an early age, the media have called her, a “Celtic sensation”.

With grace and passion, Jocelyn Pettit has ignited stages across Canada, in the U.S., the U.K., Europe, and Asia, with lively music and dance; appeared on national television and radio; shared the stage with Scottish legends, The Battlefield Band, and performed with Irish supergroup, The Chieftains.

Receiving multiple award nominations, this debut CD features high-energy NEW-TRAD Celtic music, with original compositions, and unique arrangements of contemporary and traditional melodies, steeped in the folk traditions of BC, Cape Breton, Scotland, Ireland, Scandinavia, USA, and France. This feel-good music is led by the blazing-to-soulful fiddle, accompanied by piano, guitar, bodhran, fiddle harmonies, and lyrical vocals, with special guest musicians (cello, whistle, guitar, cittern, viola). Mixed together, this ignites into an alluring sound of foot stompin' dance tunes, rhythms & chops, rich tones, and sweet melodies.

"One suspects we'll be hearing of Pettit for years to come ---
the next generation of Celtic music is in good hands."
- Strings Magazine, USA
