Victory Music Review

Jocelyn's debut CD features high energy NEW-TRAD Celtic & World music. Blazing-to-soulful fiddle leads the way, accompanied by piano, guitar, bodhran, fiddle harmony, and lyrical vocals - with special guest musicians (cello, whistle, cittern, viola, fiddles).

Ranging from rhythmic, foot-stomping, "feel-good" dance music, to beautiful sweet melodies, this CD celebrates the folk cultures of Canada, Scotland, Ireland, France, Scandinavia, and USA. This music is a mix of original compositions, and unique arrangements of favourite contemporary and traditional melodies.

This album received honourable recognition nationally and internationally, including two nominations at the prestigious 2010 Canadian Folk Music Awards (World Artist of the Year and Young Performer of the Year), and nominations for composition competitions in France (World Music) and the United States.

"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."
