Natalie Haas and Yann Falquet on October 24

Over the past thirteen years, our house concert series has witnessed many convergences. On October 24th we will host the result of one such convergence. Cellist, Natalie Haas, has appeared several times at a JHC with her sister Brittany. They in turn brought us stories of Yann Falquet, guitarist, and his Québecois trio, Genticorum. Then, in November 2007, Master Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser, Natalie's musical partner, brought his fiddle camp extravaganza onto the Trans-Canadian railway. Natalie and Yann were among the performers/instructors and this was the beginning of their musical and romantic journey. Six years later, and one year ago, they were married. While continuing to pursue their individual musical projects, they have set aside time to develop a program of their own. We will host this dynamic musical duo for the first time. 
This versatile couple will be performing a mix of original compositions as well as traditional Scottish, Québecois, Scandinavian, English, Spanish, and French tunes. Yann will also do some French Canadian songs from his repertoire that he has arranged from old songbooks and from the National folkloric archives. Natalie is also singing for the first time, and in French! 

We are located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. If you are interested in making a reservation please email; and you will receive a personal reply with details. 

Reserved seating is sold out as of 10/18. Thanks for supporting live music!
