Barbara Martin Jazz

An accomplished guitarist, vocalist and award-winning songwriter, Barbara can stand on her own in an intimate setting, mixing her original songs with blues and jazz from the 20's and 30's. She's the real deal; a true renaissance woman in music genres prone to stereotypes and pigeon-holes. Her ability to transition smoothly from chanteuse to girl-next-door to perceptive poet make her delightfully her own woman.

"Barbara has the ability to capture the tradition of the blues and make the music come alive for her listeners." -Patrick Golden, Williamsburg Regional Library and Arts Center

"Whether she’s singing a smoky blues number or a gentle ballad, her wonderfully versatile and powerful voice pulls you in and makes you listen.” -Brenda Barkley, Tidewater Friends of Folk Music

"articulate, focused, polished and engaging” -Performing Songwriter
