Gilles Rézard discovered bluegrass music at 16. He started learning guitar, then fell in love with the banjo. His two solo albums and recent cover feature in Banjo Newsletter magazine have brought him international acclaim. Based in Ige, Burgundy, music is his full-time activity, performing with Saga Trio as well as teaching. Gilles has taught hundreds of students (on banjo, guitar and mandolin) in more than 80 music camps since 2005. To improve connections between French bluegrass musicians, he has created a map locating all who register by emailing him.
