For press release:

 

Very short blurb (51 words):

«Pascal Gemme, third generation fiddler and founder of the Quebecois trio Genticorum, is one of Quebec's national treasures as well as one of her most popular traditional musicians.  For the last 20 years he has been unearthing seldom-heard songs and melodies, interpreting them with virtuosity in his unique and unmistakable style.»

Short blurb (157 words):

«Juno and ADISQ nominee, Canadian Folk Music Awards laureate many times over, Pascal Gemme has been touring the world as the fiddle hero in the Quebecois trio Genticorum for the last 14 years.  Recently, a generous offer from a French record label sent him exploring through his personal collections of seldom-heard French-Canadian fiddle tunes and his latest solo album, «Violon du Quebec», was recorded in the outskirts of Paris and released at the end of 2013. During the course of a show Pascal will guide you through the reels, galopes, jigs, cotillions, polkas and waltzes that have enriched and sustained his culture in North America for the last 400 years.  His performances tell the tales of the French Canadian men and women who have carried these melodies to us through the generations and it is this strong link with his roots, coupled with his infectious «joie de vivre» that have made Pascal a crowd pleaser internationally.»
