Montrealer Yann Falquet is one of the most creative acoustic guitarists in today's Québécois music scene. Over the last 15 years, he has recorded five albums and toured the world with French Canadian power trio Genticorum. He also toured for three years with the award-winning Canadian Celtic/world group the McDades.
In the last year, as newlywed a husband and wife team, Yann and Natalie began performing together as a duo. Don’t miss this exciting and rare opportunity to hear them live, performing a mix of Québécois traditional tunes and songs and new takes on folk music from throughout Western Europe.
Michigan-born dancer Nic Gareiss has been described by the Irish Times as “the human epitome of the unbearable lightness of being,” and "the most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene” by the Boston Herald. His choreographic work re-imagines movement as a musical practice, recasting dance as medium that appeals to both eyes and ears.
Born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, and based in Brooklyn, N.Y., Maeve Gilchrist‘s innovative folk-jazz fusion approach to her instrument stretches its harmonic limits and improvisational possibilities. She is as at home playing with a traditional Irish folk group as she is with an American string band or a contemporary ensemble. She tours and has appeared at such major music events as Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Tanglewood Jazz festival, the World Harp Congress in Amsterdam and the opening of the Scottish Parliament. The percussion and drive of Nic’s footwork combined with Maeve’s melodic and improvisational sensibilities make for an explosive duet sure to delight both the ears and the eyes.
“This is truly an all-star show,” said Great North Woods Committee for the Arts President Charlie Jordan. “Don’t miss this chance to see these two high-powered musical duos.”
