Genticorum, with special guests Seamus Egan and Lissa Schneckenburger

February 10 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$10 – $25

Genticorum is among the most distinctive voices of Québécois traditional music.

In French, to describe the chemistry between people, you say they have atomes crochus — literally, that their atoms are interlaced. There’s no better way to talk about Genticorum. The trio’s connection is magnetic. In the filigree of their arrangements, seamlessly melding fiddle, flute, accordion, guitar, foot percussion, and voices, there’s always an organic spark: at its root, this is social music, and audiences can’t help but feel the pleasure these three musicians get from playing together.

Founded in 2000, when fiddler Pascal Gemme and guitarist Yann Falquet met in Montreal’s trad scene, Genticorum quickly earned international recognition for bringing out all the poetry and nuance of French Canada’s old songs and step-dance tunes. In 2015, Nicholas Williams added his flute and accordion to the mix. Their compositions have become beloved standards at dances and sessions, their approach influencing peers and younger musicians alike. They’ve won Canadian Folk Music Awards and performed everywhere from Scotland to Malaysia, Egypt to Australia. With impeccable musicianship and infectious joie de vivre, Genticorum is bound to draw you in.

Co-presented with Twilight Music.

This concert is sponsored in part by Howard Printing.
