Who: The Quebecois Roots Band, Genticorum. For more than a decade, Genticorum has been a fixture on the international world, traditional, folk and Celtic music circuit. Firmly rooted in the soil of their native Quebec, this dynamic trio also incorporates today’s North American and European folk cultures into their music. They weave precise and intricate lines on fiddle and flute, call and response songs and achingly beautiful a capella songs in French, effervescent foot percussion and guitar and bass accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humour and stage presence make them a supreme crowd pleaser. Ask anyone whose attended one of their more than 800 concerts in over 15 countries. The trio’s four albums have met with huge critical acclaim in Canada, the United States and Great Britain. We are thrilled to welcome them to Vanderbilt for what will be an unforgettable night. Venez nombreux!
