Jean is no stranger to the Organ World and is in fact celebrating 50 years of concert performances in 2023. She is an accomplished artist with two degrees for music, both in classical and jazz. A pupil of the late Johnny Dankworth, she uses tremendous harmonies when playing jazz classics and her interpretation of Oscar Peterson and improvisation of Keith Jarrett is amazing.
She is at home in front of any type of keyboard whether it be any electronic organ, theatre organ, classical organ , or piano. She has an array of instruments at her fingertips including two B3 Hammond Organs one portable . She has a Yamaha, FX20 an EL900, an AR100, a Steinway grand piano and a 1830 Steinway Square piano plus two stage pianos, a Genos keyboard and Fender Rhodes piano.
She has played at many prestigious venues, Royal households, and all major arenas in the UK, Scotland and Wales, following her success in 2011 on Britains' Got Talent. She is proud to have played on many occasions the famous Wurlitzer organ in Blackpool Tower and the only lady to record a CD on it, which went worldwide. She often gets called upon for private events, the most recent where she helped raise £86,000 for two hospices in Blackpool.
She has performed in seven states of America on Roland, Hammond, and Yamaha organs. She was invited to perform in Martinsburg West Virginia for Senator J Rockefeller. She played for two silent movies in the Film Museum in Potsdam Berlin , and the Welte organ in the BBC Hamburg and the Welte organ in the Museum in Speyer. She is no stranger to the Netherlands, having performed on Dutch theatre organs and for the electronic society for over 20 years. One visit changed her life, when she met her husband Hans at a concert. The following year during the pandemic she streamed music from the Netherlands for 2 years then returned to the UK to perform in her very own hotel.
Jean will now be spending time in both the Netherlands and the UK so if you want to see her, or book a concert she will be pleased to come and play for you. She is back in the UK from August to December 2023 and already has 10 events to attend.
Her love of performing music is still close to her heart, and now with Hans to do the driving etc the hotel is sold and she is back on the road again. You can find her concert dates on here. Or, you can see her numerous videos on YOUTUBE,FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM and join the 15,000 followers worldwide who enjoy her "live" sessions on Facebook .
To sum her up, Jean is an internationally acclaimed artist and a wonderful entertainer, who never fails to deliver the goods in a professional way..
