Yann Falquet

A native of Montreal, Quebec, Yann is a founding member of the Quebec trad trio Genticorum and toured for three years with the award winning celtic/world group The McDades. He has taught at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in Limerick, at the Goderich Celtic College and for Alasdair Fraser’s Fiddle Train, as well as Fraser’s venerable Sierra Fiddle Camp in California. Familiar in standard tunings, alternative tunings and DADGAD styles, Yann brings much to the musical table in performance and teaching.

Falquet is a veteran acoustic guitar player on the burgeoning Québécois music scene and likes to explore many styles. Though primarily a trad player, he holds a bachelors degree in Jazz Performance. Since his time in conservatory, he has developed a personal guitar style for Québecois music, inspired by the music of Brittany, Scandinavia, Ireland, and North America. His involvement in the traditional music scene brought Yann to perform on numerous recordings, and to regularly tour throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia.
