Feb 7 to 10: Genticorum en Ontario!

Genticorum2011Great friends of ours and of the TOqueTrad sessions, Québécois group Genticorum will be touring Ontario early in February. Session regulars are organising two of the events (details below).

First, the tour dates, which are:

On Friday, February 8, Peter and Anne-Marie have agreed to host a house concert in the newly-renovated Hallam Street Concert Hall (aka their living room). Those of you who attended Genticorum’s last house concert on Hallam Street may be interested to know that this is the first post-renovation concert they are hosting. The preparations, in a word, have been extensive!

Peter says:

Hi Friends:
The fantastic Quebecois trio GENTICORUM are playing a house concert in Toronto. They will making a return to the newly renovated Hallam St Concert Hall. Based in Montreal, Pascal Gemme (fiddle, feet and vocals), Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand (flute, bass and vocals) and Yann Flaquet (guitar, feet and vocals) serve up a selection of hearty, delectable tunes and songs in the Quebecois tradition. Even though they have played major venues and festivals around the world, been nominated for both Juno and Felix Awards, and earned two Canadian Folk Music Awards, they still fit in a living room. This is a great opportunity to hear them at close range.

When: Friday Feb 8th, 8:00 pm (doors open at 7:30)
Where: Bloor and Ossington area
Cost: $20. Seating is limited so advanced reservations are required
For details and reservations, please email Peter & Ann-Marie at
