NEXT PERFORMANCE :
28 December 2013 at 7:30 pm
Jocelyn Pettit will be performing Saturday, December 28, 2013 at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek at 7:30 pm. Hailing from the West Coast of Canada, Jocelyn Pettit is a vibrant fiddler, step-dancer, singer, and composer. Performing with grace and passion, she has ignited stages across North America, Scotland, France, and Malaysia with her dynamic and expressive style of Celtic music and dance.
First inspired by the driving energy of the Cape Breton fiddle, and further drawn to explore the musical culture of Québec, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, and Galicia, Jocelyn has embraced her love for Canadian and Celtic traditions and created a spirited style of her own.
Such a sound has taken Jocelyn to perform on national Canadian television and radio; and earned her multiple award nominations, including two at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Jocelyn has also performed with Irish Supergroup; The Chieftains (50th Anniversary Tour); and at the 2010 Olympic Victory Medal Ceremony in Vancouver, Canada. For this North Creek concert; joined by multi-instrumentalist Greg Anderson from New York City, of The Eileen Ivers Band, The Klezmatics, and Doctor Nerve (guitar); her mother, Siew Wan Khoo (piano, fiddle); and her father, Joel Pettit (bodhran); this promises to be an upbeat and joyous evening of music, song, and dance.
"A top-notch musician and major emerging talent." - Europe's FolkWorld Magazine
“An incredible fiddle player, who blew away the audience with her expertise.” - The Celtic Connection, Vancouver, Canada
