Jeremy Gignoux is ever oscillating between calling himself a violinist or a fiddler. Playing within those lines, he has developed an original sound and technique.
His main project the Acoustic Ensemble plays lyrical instrumental music that defies genre classification, stretching from Parisian Swing to folk experiments. In his first album Cinacoustic, Jeremy features his compositions for the ensemble with Jason Valleau (upright bass), Wayne Garrett (guitar), and Nathan M. Godfrey (resonator, banjo).
Based in Calgary, AB (Mohkinstsis), he loves collaborating with other performing arts, being part of two Decidedly Jazz Danceworks productions, a dance piece by Catherine Hayward with Dancers’ Studio West and a musical with Rosebud Theatre.
