Young Tradition Festival Concert with Genticorum

May 2, 2019, 6:00PM - 8:00PM

In late April and early May 2019, Young Tradition Vermont will bring together young people involved in traditional music and dance, and those who support and are interested in what they do, in an effort to share with the community young trad singers, players and dancers and what they bring to the world. At the Young Tradition Festival, young folks are the focus, supported by their teachers, mentors, friends, and families. With opportunities to interact with others, young people can use what has inspired them, what they have learned, and opportunities to perform to inspire others.

Part of Young Tradition Festival is an evening concert series at BCA Center, which includes this concert by Genticorum. Over the past 18 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 met with critical acclaim in Canada, the United States, and Europe, assuring the band a brilliant future. Known for its energy and its stage presence, Genticorum has given more than a 1000 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.

Cost: $20 in advance, $25 at the door
