Our very special friends from Quebec, Yann Falquet and Pascal Gemme are going to a very special private concert here at the cabin.
Yann and Pascal are 2/3rds of the world-touring Quebecois trio Genticorum. Tiffany and I first discovered the group at the National Folk Festival in 2011, and in 2016 we had the great pleasure to study music with Yann and Pascal at the New Harmony Music Festival and School. While we’ve been very busy with our various pursuits, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to host Yann and Pascal. You will be blown away by their talent, personality, and passion for entertaing.
Yann and Pascal are both master entertainers, and this format provides plenty of space for their musical personalities to shine. Pascal’s fiddling, Yann’s guitar accompaniment, and the duo’s vast repertoire of traditional songs and tunes are all presented with elegance and effortless musicianship.
Yann Falquet is a very active and creative acoustic guitar player on the Québécois music scene. His involvement in the province’s traditional music scene has brought Yann to perform on numerous recordings, and to tour regularly throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe and Australia with his main project Genticorum. He also toured for three years with the award winning Celtic and world group The McDades.
Pascal Gemme is a leading light in Quebec’s traditional music scene. Known as much for his original compositions as his fine interpretation of traditional tunes, Pascal is the fiddler, singer and arranger of the band, Genticorum, whose CDs have met with critical acclaim in several countries. Pascal has developed a vast knowledge and is a leading exponent of Quebecois music.
Because this is a Sunday show, we’re starting an hour earlier. Doors will open at 6PM and the concert will begin at 7PM. We’ll have some snacks and beverages out on the table, and you are welcome to bring something to share, or just to enjoy yourself. As with all of our shows, you must reserve your seats in advance. Seats are $15 and the funds go directly to the artist. Remember that we only have 25 seats available, so please reserve yours early. Most shows do sell out. Reserve your seats here.
