Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present traditional folk and Celtic music trio Genticorum, with special guests Seamus Egan and Lissa Schneckenburger, at Next Stage 15 Kimball Hill, Saturday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m.
Genticorum features intricate fiddle, flute, and accordion lines, vocal harmonies, guitar textures, and foot percussion.
The trio's founding members Pascal Gemme and Yann Falquet are both recognized as major contributors to the traditional music scene in Quebec and, since 2015, they have been joined by multi-instrumentalist and composer Nicholas Williams.
They are known for their "unbridled energy, musicianship, and magnetic stage presence," state organizers in a news release. "The infectious joie de vivre that these three musicians bring to the stage, playing and creating together, is palpable."
Over the past 22 years, "Genticorum has showcased the poetry and nuance of French Canada's old songs and step-dance tunes." Pascal, Yann, and Nicholas have won multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards and received Juno and ADISQ nominations.
Genticorum has carved a place for itself on the international music scene, performing on stages worldwide, from Celtic Connections in Scotland, the Tønder Folk Festival in Denmark; the National Folk Festival in Australia; the Independent Music Festival in Alexandria, Egypt; and the Rain Forest Festival in Malaysia to countless venues across North America.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and $10 for access to the concert livestream. Advance tickets are available at nextstagearts.org. Next Stage will provide a beer, wine, and cocktail cash bar. For information, call 802-387-0102.
