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,
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."
