Fiddle/violin, composition/improvisation, tradition/avant-garde, jazz/country, artist/family man, French/Albertan. Jeremy Gignoux spends a great deal of time making thriving complements out of apparent contradictions.
Based in Mohkinstsis on Treaty 7 Land (Calgary, AB), he loves collaborating with other performing arts, and was part of the house band for two Decidedly Jazz Danceworks productions and a musical with Rosebud Theatre. In 2017, he was the composer and sole musician for Catherine Hayward’s piece in Dancer’s Studio West’s Metamorphosis.
His main project the Acoustic Ensemble plays lyrical instrumental music that defies genre classification, stretching from Parisian Swing to folk experiments. His compositions are featured in his album Cinacoustic.
