BELLOWS FALLS—The well-known Quebecois trio Genticorum will perform in Bellows Falls at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16. The Stone Church Arts concert takes place at Immanuel Episcopal Church, the stone church on the hill, 20 Church St.

Over the past 18 years, Genticorum has become a fixture on the international world, trad, folk, and Celtic music circuit. The band’s six albums have met with critical success in Canada, the U.S., and Europe.

Genticorum has given more than 800 concerts in more than 15 countries. Firmly rooted in the soil of their native land, the energetic and original traditional “power trio” also incorporates the dynamism of today’s North American and European folk cultures in their music, according to a news release.

Pascal Gemme is a leading light in Quebec’s traditional music scene. Known as much for his original compositions as for his fine interpretation of traditional tunes, Pascal is the fiddler, singer, and arranger of the band.

Yann Falquet is a very active and creative acoustic guitar player on the Québécois music scene. He has explored many styles of music and completed a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz. Since then, he has developed a personal guitar style for Québec folk music, inspired by the playing of the accompanists of different cultures.

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.
