A Chicago native who has been singing since she was 13 years old, Pippi has performed in Chicago’s most respected jazz clubs – from the Burning Spear and Mr. Kelly’s to the famous Rosebud on Rush, Green Dolphin, the Chicago Symphony Center and the Taste of Chicago. In Minnesota, Pippi has appeared at every Twin Cities jazz venue. She recently moved her PipJazz Foundation programs, including Women of Jazz and From Blues to Jazz workshops, to the House of Payne on St. Paul’s East Side.

Pippi is a natural entertainer, sultry at times, always powerful and exciting, but what sweeps you away is the electric raw emotion that emanates from her to you, telling a story in song like you’ve never heard before, a natural power in nature.
“Ms. Ardennia’s classy style puts her in the Major League of jazz vocalists. Her easy-going style and varied delivery does stand in comparison to the great jazz divas such as Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne.” –Ian Telle

She received rave reviews opening for greats such as Herbie Hancock, Stephan Grapelli, Miles Davis, Lou Rawls and Joe Henderson.

Debbie Duncan may be considered the upper Midwest’s “best-kept-musical secret” but she has become a local legend and treasure in her home of Minneapolis. Her personality, vitality, and versatility all contribute to that fact. She is a terrific entertainer, and this is certainly part of her appeal. Most importantly, however, “she’s a superb vocalist, probably the finest in the area/” [Bob Protzman, St. Paul Pioneer Press]
