Classes and Concert conducted by:

Adrien Moignard (guitar)

Adrien Moignard was born in 1985. He started playing guitar at the age of 11. He showed signs of incredible abilities immediately. Starting by learning blues and rock guitar, he was part of a few local bands as a guitar player and a singer around the age of 14. He discovered the music of Django Reinhardt at the age of 15 and fell in love with it instantly. After developing some of the skills in the style , he started to meet some people playing this “gipsy jazz” who immediately wanted to collaborate with him. So at the age of 18, he started to play in a band called “Gipsy color” with whom he performed concerts all around France, as well as international festivals like the “Gipsy jazz festival of Noumea” in 2004.

In order to keep growing in the style and music in general, Adrien moves to Paris in 2005 and creates the band called “Zaiti” (with Mathieu Chatelain, Jeremie Arranger and Cedric Ricard ) with whom he plays all around the world (Australia , Norway, Danemark , Chypre, Spain, New Caledonia …)

Adrien Moignard has become one of the most famous guitar players, acclaimed for his incredible capacities to play and develop gipsy jazz and jazz music all around the world.

Olli Soikkeli (guitar)

Olli Soikkeli was born in Nurmes, Finland in 1991. Now based in New York City. He started playing guitar at age of 12. After a few years of playing Olli was introduced to the music of great Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Jazz has been Ollis main focus ever since. Soon Olli was playing in jazz clubs and festivals all around Finland.

Despite his young age he’s already played with stars such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Andreas Öberg, Samson Schmitt, Anat Cohen, Tommy Emmanuel, Paulus Schäfer, Antti Sarpila and Marian Petrescu.

2014 Rhythm Future Quartet’s debut album was released. The Wall Street Journal wrote “Olli Soikkeli, a riveting finnish guitarist who combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django.”

Jason Anick (violin)

One of the youngest instructors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Anick is considered “a rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin” (Downbeat Magazine). In addition to leading his own contemporary jazz ensemble and performing with the Rhythm Future Quartet, Anick has been touring and recording with Grammy award-winning Nashville guitar virtuoso John Jorgenson since 2008 when he was recruited while still a senior at the Hartt Conservatory.

Jason is also a sought-after educator, and has taught jazz violin and mandolin to students of all ages at string camps, workshops, and clinics around the world.  Jason regularly contributes educational columns to Fiddler Magazine and instructional videos to Christian Howes’ Creative Strings Academy.
