Celebrating 20 Years of the Finest Acoustic Music
Please note: larger shows will be at the newly renovated Whately Town Hall instead of the Chapel. Also note: not all shows are on a Wednesday (musicians are notoriously hard to pin down).
Della Mae is a GRAMMY-nominated, Nashville-based, string band made up of lead vocalist/guitarist Celia Woodsmith, 2-time national champion fiddle player Kimber Ludiker, mandolinist Jenni Lyn Gardner, and upright bassist Zoe Guigueno. Hailing from across North America, and reared in diverse musical styles, they are one of the most charismatic and engaging roots bands touring today. They have traveled to over 30 countries spreading peace and understanding through music.
Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians, and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.
Genticorum…musique du Quebec. To borrow from their website:
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 humour and stage presence makes them a supreme crowd pleaser.
Genticorum is Pascal Gemme, vocals and violin, Yann Falquet, vocals and guitar, Nicholas Williams, flute, keyboards, and accordion.
