Charles Brennan Gregoire is originally from the Eastern Townships in Quebec – he was born and raised in the Sherbrooke area. He was interested in music at an early age and took several years of piano and theory lessons prior to moving on to classical guitar.
Charles was involved with bands during his time at Champlain CEGEP in Lennoxville, Quebec. He was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a professional drummer, which led to performing in a local venue. A few years later at UNB in Fredericton, New Brunswick, he performed with a band in the Red and Black Review, campus events, and on local television. He also taught guitar and wrote original material.
Charles was recruited from UNB to join a high-tech firm in the Ottawa area in 1982. Since then, he has performed at local venues, weddings, Christmas parties, church services, family gatherings, seniors’ residences, and nursing homes. His classical guitar repertoire includes a combination of Classical, Celtic, Modern and Jazz selections arranged for Flute and Guitar as well as Solo Guitar.
Charles resides in Kanata, Ontario, with his wife, Heidi. They enjoy tandem-cycling and travelling.
