A native of the Gatineau Valley, John Geggie has studied with numerous esteemed teachers in both the orchestral as well as the improvised music fields. In Ottawa, he worked with David Currie of the National Arts Centre Orchestra and continued post-graduate studies with Larry Hurst and Bruce Bransby at Indiana University. With the help of a grant through the Canada Council, John studied with the well-known bassist and solo artist Gary Peacock whose credits include work with Bill Evans, Albert Ayler and Keith Jarrett.  John is active in the Ottawa-Hull region as a free-lance double bass player and teacher. In addition to his work in the award -winning jazz quartet ‘Chelsea Bridge‘ and the Juno-nominated world beat group ‘The Angstones’, he is much in-demand for recordings and concerts/broadcasts on both the CBC and Radio-Canada.
