Genot Picor – Storyteller

Genot Picor has been performing in schools, libraries, museums and festivals, from Monroe to Ironwood and from Niles to Sault Ste. Marie since 1999. He recreates an authentic French Canadian veillée, or social gathering; a combination of stories, songs and dances from early Michigan. His musical ensemble ‘Trois Bouffons’ is available as well to add to the fun! Genot’s curriculum friendly school program “Stories, Songs and Dances of the Voyageur,” gives students the opportunity to accompany him on a “first-person” journey from Montreal to Michigan. Interactive, hands-on activities, examination of trade items and authentic archaeological artifacts are included.
