Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira

Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira

  • Contemporary
  • Fiddle
  • Instrumental

First meeting in Scotland, Jocelyn Pettit and Ellen Gira joined their musical forces. Fusing together traditional and contemporary influences, they create powerfully uplifting and soulful music. Their instruments weave a dynamic, rhythmically driving and textured sound, with nuanced fiddle-cello interplay through delicate and fortissimo arrangements. They bring life and fire into their own original melodies, and high-energy tunes from Scotland, Ireland, North America, and Scandinavia – with Canadian stepdancing, to boot. Jocelyn and Ellen are keen to perform, and have been gracing stages and captivating audiences in both North America and the UK.

Performance highlights include: Celtic Connections Festival, Northern Streams Festival, Niel Gow Festival, Edinburgh Castle, Blair Castle, a Royal Visit performance for HRH Prince Charles, and live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3.
