Brigitte Jardin gets inspiration from the traditional Country, Old-Time & Cajun repertoire. She navigates between guitar, washboard, drums, vocals & foot percussion. As a queer bilingual woman, she incorporates topics both in French and English featuring gender theme, as part of her performance. She usually plays with a supporting band malleable to the occasion with instruments including slide guitar, fiddle, upright bass & drum kit. Brigitte Jardin creates a soundscape that is both familiar and unique.
Jardin also pays tribute to roots female singers that had had an impact in the industry such as Cléoma Breaux as the first Cajun women that had recorded in Louisiana, Gallant tu perds ton temps as the first traditional all-women band in Québec & Barbara Dane as a political activist and folk-singer from Michigan.
Originally from Quebec, Brigitte was involved full-time in the music scene of Montreal as a drummer. She’s now a renowned artist in the Yukon actively performing with Ryan McNally, Claire Ness & many more for the past eight years. Brigitte Jardin has now decided to focus her time, work & love on her country-folk musical project.
