About Maxine

Guitarist
Cullompton
Guitar/vocals/alto clarinet with reeds player Charlie Hearnshaw. Jazz & swing, plus specialist Latin & French chanson repertoires.

For 10 years + I've performed in various commercial bands - duos to sextets - with clarinettist/saxophonist/pianist Charlie Hearnshaw. We tailor our wide repertoire to suit the event, performing jazz, swing, popular standards, Latin, New Orleans, French chansons and instrumental music, original music and song. We play at all kinds of events: weddings, funerals, parties, cabarets, concerts, festivals. Also recorded 3 albums with jazz interpretations of songs by the great French poet/songwriter Georges Brassens. Performed across England, at festivals in France and Belgium, collaborated with author Julian Barnes to present a cabaret at Swindon Festival of Literature.

Thank you so much for your brilliant sets on Sunday. Your low volume was perfect for the party. Everyone loved your music and it was an ideal accompaniment to the gorgeous weather.
