Popular and acclaimed musical trio combines rollicking interpretations of traditional Quebecois folk songs with original instrumentals.
Over the past 20 years the trad Quebec group Genticorum has become a fixture on the international world, trad, folk and Celtic music circuit. The band’s six albums have met with critical acclaim in Canada, the United States and Europe. Known for its energy and its stage presence, 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. They weave precise and intricate fiddle, flute and accordion work, gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion and guitar accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humor and stage presence makes them a supreme crowd pleaser. This concert was delayed due to Covid and Canadian border crossing restrictions. This fall we, finally, welcome Genticorum to the Opera House stage! Advance discounted tickets $25, available only from the box office at 207-633-5159 (open Wed – Fri from 10-2).
