BARBARA MARTIN
Barbara Martin - Live Music At The Osceola Mill
SAT, SEPT 11th
6:30PM - 8:30PM
Vocalist Barbara Martin is best known not only for being an accomplished interpreter of the great jazz and blues standards; but also for her ability to stretch the boundaries of the female jazz and blues singer image.

She writes award-winning songs. She plays guitar. She collaborates with other acclaimed artists to produce engaging live shows and music education programs. She’s as comfortable in a New York cabaret show or a major venue like The Kennedy Center as she is in an intimate house concert or a bohemian cafe.

Her expertise and talent place her squarely in the company of the legends she teaches about in her educational series “Women of Blues and Jazz,” but it’s her ability to transition smoothly from chanteuse to girl-next-door to perceptive poet that makes her so delightfully her own woman.
