Yann & Pascal started their musical journey 20 years ago, busking on the streets of Montréal. They have since played over a thousand shows in twenty countries with the Quebecois trio Genticorum, and they now return as a duo. Yann Falquet has explored many styles of music and completed a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz. Since then, he has developed a personal guitar style for Québec folk music, inspired by the playing of the accompanists of different cultures such as Brittany, Scandinavia, Ireland and North America. Pascal Gemme is a leading light in Quebec’s traditional music scene who is known as much for his original compositions as his fine interpretation of traditional tunes. Pascal’s fiddling, Yann’s guitar accompaniment, and the duo’s vast repertoire of traditional songs and tunes are all presented with elegance and effortless musicianship.
