Pascal Gemme, acknowledged as one of the best traditional Quebecois fiddlers of his generation, has an unconditional love for and deep understanding of the many styles of his native province. Inspired by his grandfather and his uncle, both lifelong fiddle players, Pascal learned to play his family tunes and a wide variety of other tunes played by his elders in traditional jams, soirées and evening dances. He joined the long line of French Canadian players who helped keep their traditions alive, learning the repertoire and the techniques they used to create their distinctive sound.
