JOCELYN PETTIT

From the West Coast of British Columbia, Jocelyn Pettit is a vibrant fiddle player, stepdancer and singer of Scottish, Irish, French, and Malaysian heritage. With uplifting energy and engaging stage presence, Jocelyn integrates the Celtic and folk traditions of her roots into her performances and original compositions.

Over the past 15 years, Jocelyn has performed across Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Europe, and Malaysia. She has appeared on CBC and BBC television and radio, shared the stage with the Irish supergroup The Chieftains, and received multiple award nominations including “World Artist of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards, and at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

As a recording artist, Jocelyn has released three critically-acclaimed albums. Her Debut, and second album, Caravan, received multiple award nominations for World Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, and at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. A third album, Wind Rose, was nominated for Solo Artist of the Year at the 2023 Canadian Folk Music Awards, and Global Artist of the Year at the 2024 Western Canadian Music Awards.

OLIVIA BARRETT

Summoning a wave of modern nostalgia, Olivia’s masterful fiddle playing flows seamlessly between the old and the new, breathing life into traditional tunes through the rhythms of contemporary folk. Elegant, playful, and precise, Olivia’s music is defined by her gift for crafting new melodies from the threads of the traditions of Ireland, Scotland, and Scandinavia.

Raised on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Olivia grew up in a community known for its nurturing of young artists and musicians and went on to graduate from Memorial University of Newfoundland. While studying at the University of Limerick’s Irish World Academy in 2019, she was selected to represent the academy both at Glasgow's Celtic Connections festival and at Milwaukee Irish Fest.

ADAM DOBRES

Adam is a highly accomplished guitarist with a natural ability to embody any style of music. He is equally at home with bluegrass, Celtic, jazz, Gypsy, country, folk, old time, rock, blues, and more. His love of the electric and acoustic guitar has taken him around the globe, performing throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. With a taste for experimenting with personal style and a love of touring, Adam has embarked on living his dream. From playing Celtic music with some of Canada’s finest fiddle players including Daniel Lapp and Pierre Schryer, Adam has branched out to pop rock with Grammy Nominee Toni Childs, and performed with renowned musicians playing exotic instruments such as the sitar, Turkish lira and African kora..
