September 23rd: Genticorum

With multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, as well as Juno and ADISQ nominations, GENTICORUM have earned a reputation as a leading voice in the evolution of Québécois traditional music.

For over twenty years, the trio has earned a place of privilege on world, traditional, folk and Celtic music stages. Known for their unbridled energy, their musicianship and their magnetic stage presence, the trio has won over audiences at such prestigious events as Celtic Connections in Scotland, the Tønder Folk Festival in Denmark, the National Folk Festival in Australia, the Independent Music Festival in Alexandria, Egypt, the Rain Forest Festival in Malaysia, as well as countless venues across North America.

Pascal Gemme (fiddle) and Yann Falquet (guitar), the group’s two founding members, are both recognized individually as major contributors to the trad music scene in Québec. Since 2015, they have been joined by accomplished multi-instrumentalist and composer Nicholas Williams (flute, accordion). Weaving intricate fiddle, flute and accordion lines, gorgeous vocal harmonies, subtle guitar textures and exhilarating foot percussion, the pleasure that these three musicians have creating and playing together is palpable, both in the studio and on the concert stage.

October 14: Fodhla

Nicole Rabata, flute
Ellery Klein, fiddle
Bethany Waickman, guitar

Named after an Irish goddess, and also the literary name for Ireland, Fódhla (pronounced Foh-la) is comprised of flutist Nicole Rabata, fiddler Ellery Klein and guitarist Bethany Waickman. Based in Portland, Maine and Boston, the trio plays throughout New England at festivals, concerts and sessions. Most recently, they have appeared at BCM Fest, Belfast Celtic Fest and Saltwater Celtic Fest, as well as Skye Theater and numerous concert series. Their debut CD ‘Fódhla’ was released in 2015.

Concerts will be preformed at the New Brackett Church on Peaks Island.

If you’re coming from town catch the 5:35 and have dinner on island at one of our terrific chef owned and family operated restaurants like The Cockeyed Gull, Il Leone, or the Island Lobster Company.

    1. Hi Britt!
      We look forward to welcoming you here. You can get tickets by Venmo @AcadiaTradFestival or at the door. We are about a mile from the ferry terminal and be sure to bing a picnic, a blanket or chairs to enjoy the show. Watch our social media for any weather updates. If rain is predicted we will move to an indoor location on Peaks Island at the New Brackett Church.
      Thanks for your interest. ellen

    2. Hello,
      My wife and I would very much like to attend the John Doyle and Mick McCauley show. I understand that parking is limited and the walk to your venue is about a mile. I am 70 and in need of a knee replacement, so I am concerned about being able to make the walk. Is there any transportation available on the island, or possibility of being able to park nearby should I drive my car. I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks so much.

        518-0000 is the taxi on Peaks Island. If you can get here we can get you back to the boat. Make sure you bring something to sit on and perhaps a picnic to enjoy. the show is going to be amazing!
        All the best,
        Ellen
