House concert for folk music club

This promises to be an upbeat and joyous evening of music, song, and dance.

With grace and passion, vibrant fiddler, stepdancer, singer, and composer Jocelyn Pettit has ignited stages across Canada, the U.S., Scotland, and Malaysia with her lively Celtic music and dance.

First inspired by the driving energy of Cape Breton fiddling, and further drawn to explore the musical culture of Québec, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, and Galicia, Jocelyn has embraced her love for Canadian and Celtic traditions and created a spirited style of her own.

The 18-year-old has appeared on national television and radio; received multiple award nominations; shared the stage with Scottish legends the Battlefield Band; performed with Irish supergroup the Chieftains; and will soon perform in France.

She will be joined April 20 at a 7 p.m. house concert in Merville by her excellent band, which includes her mother Siew on piano and fiddle, her father Joel on bodhran and ‘adopted’ Uncle Bob on guitar. This promises to be an upbeat and joyous evening of music, song, and dance.

To learn more about the band and hear some of their music, go to www.jocelynpettit.com.

To accommodate the band, complete with keyboard and step-dancing area, we will have to limit seats more than usual, so get in touch soon if you’d like to reserve tickets, by phoning 250-337-5337. All proceeds go directly to Jocelyn and her band.

We’ll also have our ever popular charity raffle during the evening, with the usual great prizes, and proceeds going to the Ursula Joy Trust Fund.

Since last October, when baby Ursula was diagnosed with brain cancer, we have raised, thanks to so many generous donors, more than $11,000 to help her family in their time of need.
