From Quebec Genticorum return to Nevada County for CD Release Concert at the Off Center Stage at The Center for the Arts on Sunday, April 15.

Over the past 15 years Genticorum have become a fixture on the international world, traditional, folk and Celtic music circuit. The band’s five albums met with critical acclaim in Canada, the United States and Europe, winning both the Canadian Folk Ensemble of the Year and Canadian Folk Album of the Year awards. Known for their energy and stage presence, Genticorum have 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.
