Jocelyn Pettit and Ellen Gira will bring their East Coast tour of dynamic Celtic music to the York Street Meeting House on Monday, August 22 at 7:00 pm. Fusing together traditional and contemporary influences, Jocelyn (fiddle, step-dancing and vocal) & Ellen (cello) 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 richly interwoven vocal harmonies, and lively Canadian stepdancing.

From the West Coast of Canada, Jocelyn Pettit is a vibrant fiddle player, stepdancer, and singer. With grace and passion, she has delighted audiences and ignited stages across Canada and worldwide, appeared on national television and radio, performed with internationally-renowned groups including The Chieftains, and released two multi-award-nominated albums.

From the East Coast of the USA, Ellen Gira is an accomplished cellist who has performed throughout North America and the UK. She has collaborated and recorded with numerous acclaimed traditional musicians, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Scottish Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Supported in part by a grant from the Vermont Arts Council & the National Endowment for the Arts. The Meeting House is handicap accessible. 153 York Street, Lyndon. Masks are voluntary, but encouraged.
