Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira

From Canada and the US, Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira are a dynamic fiddle and cello duo. First meeting in Scotland in 2018, they joined their musical forces, and have since been gracing stages and captivating audiences in both North America and the UK.

Fusing together traditional and contemporary influences, Jocelyn & Ellen create powerfully uplifting and soulful music.  Their instruments weave a 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 – complimented by interwoven vocal harmonies, and lively stepdancing.

Performance highlights include Celtic Connections (UK), Niel Gow Festival (UK), Edinburgh Castle (UK), Harrison Festival of the Arts (CAN), Northwest Folklife Festival (USA), and Folk Alliance International (USA). They have also performed for HRH Prince Charles, and live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. Their debut duo album, All It Brings, was released in July 2022.
