GENTICORUM

Over the past 20 years the traditional Quebec group Genticorum has become a fixture on the international world, folk and Celtic music circuit. The band’s six albums met with critical acclaim in Canada, the U.S, and Europe and their newest album was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards for "Best Ensemble" and “Best Traditional Record.” Firmly rooted in the soil of their native land, the energetic and original traditional power trio weaves precise and intricate fiddle, flute, and accordion work along with gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion, and guitar accompaniment into a high-energy musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humor, and stage presence always makes for an amazing show. Genticorum has given more than a 1000 concerts in more than 15 countries. Pascal Gemme (fiddle, feet, voice) is widely recognized as a cultural ambassador for Québécois music. Yann Falquet is one of the most active and creative acoustic guitar players in the Québécois and New England music scenes. Since completing a bachelor's degree in jazz, he has developed his own personal guitar style for Québec folk music. Nicholas Williams has developed a reputation as a versatile and sought-after musician in the traditional music scenes of Québec and New England. His rhythmic yet nuanced style of flute playing draws from Irish and Scottish traditions, as well as from his studies of classical North Indian music. Genticorum is proudly supported by Délégation du Québec à Boston / Québec Government Office in Boston.
