Joining forces in Glasgow in 2018, Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira were already two well-established musicians, who found together a kindred musical spirit. With Jocelyn on fiddle and Ellen on cello, they push boundaries between traditional and contemporary genres to create a powerfully uplifting and soulful performance.
On stage, their instruments weave a rhythmic, textured sound with nuanced fiddle-cello interplay. Complemented with vocal harmonies and lively stepdancing, they bring life and fire into original tunes, and high-energy repertoire from Scotland, Ireland, North America, and Scandinavia. FolkWorld Magazine calls them “A dazzling duo!”.
Jocelyn & Ellen have been gracing stages and delighting audiences in North America and the UK with their album, All It Brings. Nominated for 2024 "Traditional Album of the Year" at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, FolkWales Magazine calls the album “Wonderful, captivating... the most joyous and uplifting album in the entire galaxy.”
