February 3, 2024 at THE EXCHANGE
2431 - 8th Ave, Regina

We are really excited to again be part of the FROST Festival and we have a full day of performance, education and fun lined up!

This year's ceilidh will feature JOCELYN PETTIT & ELLEN GIRA.

Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira are a dynamic North American fiddle & cello duo. As 2024 Canadian Folk Music Award nominees for “Traditional Album of the Year”, their album All It Brings is hailed as “dazzling” (FolkWorld), and “simply exquisite” (Folk London).

Catch them on tour for an evening of high-energy tunes and soulful songs, with nuanced fiddle-cello interplay, vocal harmonies, lively stepdancing, and French Canadian foot percussion.

"Wonderful, captivating... the most joyous and uplifting album in the entire galaxy.”  - FolkWales Magazine
