Greetings, everyone,

It is with great pleasure that John Parkinson and I invite everyone to join us for a house concert/Christmas party with Genticorum.

This is open especially to Morris people, but also to friends and fellow lovers of traditional music. We propose a pot luck supper (6 p.m.) followed by a wonderful concert with Genticorum (8 p.m.), and then a session for all those who play music and/or sing. Please bring a pot of whatever food you make that is good to share, and bring your own beverages of a sociable nature.

Date: Friday, December 12th
Time: Please arrive any time after 6 p.m., Concert begins at 8.
Place: Parky and Sydney's log home near Shelburne
Cost: $20 per person - all proceeds go to Genticorum - let's help them have a fine Christmas.

Please email me to reserve your spot. We have a good number of seats available, but they will very likely be reserved in no time. Once we are full, that's it.

If you've not had the pleasure of hearing Genticorum before, please check them out at their website. Pascal Gemme (fiddle & feet), Alex de Grosbois Garand (flute, bass) and Yann Falquet (guitar, jew's harp) do an absolutely fabulous concert of both original and traditional music, and have developed a following all around the world. Genticorum finished their third CD earlier this year, to critical acclaim. (Their second CD actually got nominated for a Juno Award.) Their three part harmonies on their wonderful traditional call and response songs will blow you away.

So, please email me at wjeg at to reserve spots - please indicate how many tickets you need. (You can pay when you arrive at the party.) Once you have reserved, I will send you driving directions.
