Yann Falquet is a busy acoustic guitar player on the Québécois music scene. With a Bachelors degree in Jazz, he explores diverse styles of music and plays with a variety of musicians. He also plays the button accordion, and appeared at the Moab Music Festival last summer with Brittany Haas (violin), Natalie Haas (cello) and Jordan Tice (guitar). We invited Yann to talk about his accordion and perform for our “Squeezebox Special,” which aired Saturday, October 21st from 2-4 pm.
Yann tours regularly throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe and Australia with his main project Genticorum. He also toured for three years with the award winning Celtic and world group The McDades and appears with Natalie Haas in a duo.
Yann has taught his guitar style at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in Limerick, at the Goderich Celtic College as well as for Alasdair Fraser’s Fiddle Train and Sierra Fiddle Camp.
Thanks to Yann and friends for being part of KZMU’s Squeezebox Special!
