"Plein de charme, comme les bulles du champagne" - Sylvie Clidiere
THREEPENNY MOON is a freshly formed cabaret duo based in the Blue Mountains and comprising singer-songwriter Jocelyn Moen on vocals, guitar, ukulele, piano and bodhran, and Renaissance guy Martin Dawes on vocals, piano, fiddle and sousaphone.
Juggling instruments and languages, Jocelyn and Martin perform a wide range of originals, French chansons, Celtic classics, hillbilly harmonies, and covers from Kurt Weill and Franz Schubert to Johnny Cash and Billy Joel. Their versatility and wit, not to mention their wigs, make for a night out as quirkily exotic as it is mightily entertaining.

Martin Dawes studied tuba and voice at UBC before earning a PhD in English from McGill Uni. Formerly of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve band and a cappella vocal quartet The Mixmasters, Martin takes his McLeod blood as a license to call his violin a fiddle.
"Blessed with a wonderful sense of style and expression, Martin is one of the most gifted musicians I have ever had the pleasure to work with" - Dennis Miller, Principal Tuba (ret.), Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal
