With impeccable musicianship and an infectious joie de vivre, Genticorum are amongst the most distinctive voices in traditional Québécois music, seamlessly melding fiddle, flute, accordion, guitar, foot percussion and voices.

Recipients of four Canadian Folk Music Awards, and with Juno and ADISQ nominations, the trio are one of Quebec’s leading traditional groups, having carved a formidable presence amongst the international traditional, folk and Celtic music scenes. In their 20+ years, Genticorum’s six albums and four EPs have received critical acclaim in Canada and abroad, fuelling high demand for their live shows. Known for their energy and stage presence, but also for refined and precisely executed arrangements, they have performed nearly 2,000 concerts in 20 countries.

Pascal Gemme (fiddle) and Yann Falquet (guitar), the two founding members of the trio, are also individually recognised for their contribution to the industry, with some of their compositions becoming beloved standards in Quebec’s dance and session scene. Joined in 2015 by acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and composer, Nicholas Williams (flute, accordion), the pleasure that the three musicians have in playing and making music together is palpable, both on stage and on record.

This French-Canadian trio really are something of a sensation and combine magnificent three part native tongue vocal harmonies with jaw dropping musicianship and really are up there with the best of the genre
