UPCOMING CONCERTS

GEMME_FALQUET-show-6003x4002
Saturday, September 12, at 8:00 pm

Pascal and Yann started their musical journey about fifteen years ago busking while playing traditional Quebecois tunes in downtown Montreal. Not too long after that, they formed the band Genticorum along with multi-instrumentalist Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand, with whom they toured the folk and world music festivals around the world. Rich from their experience with the trio, Yann and Pascal return to the duo format to explore a more intimate approach to their music, focusing on Pascal’s large fiddle tune repertoire accumulated through the years and Yann’s folk song collection.

2015_Sarah_McQuaid_4
Friday, September 25, at 8:00 pm

Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). Her new album Walking Into White (2015) is her most honest and adventurous work to date, with a depth and texture of soundscape that are reflected in her beautifully crafted live shows. A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument.
