Qualicum Beach-musician described as "top-notch" by European FolkWorld Magazine performing at the Acoustic Cafe May 2

A vibrant four-piece ensemble from Squamish will perform at Qualicum Beach’s last Acoustic Cafe of the season May 2.

The Jocelyn Pettit Band plays a variety of music including Celtic and Quebecois tunes. Jocelyn Pettit, a fiddler, stepdancer and singer, has been described by European FolkWorld Magazine as “a top-notch musician, and major emerging talent.”

Known as a Celtic sensation around B.C., Petit composes her own music, as well as forms creative arrangements in the Celtic and Canadian traditions.
