Although she frequently performs her arrangements of vintage American music, for her performance at the Brewster Open Mic Classical, she is looking forward to sharing her “closet love” for classical music. Jacqueline’s music has been fostered by community music making in the traditional folk music and dance community; she is delighted to see this mirrored in the Brewster Open Mic Classical gathering! She will perform Brazilian pieces by Ernesto Nazareth, Cuban music by Ignacio Cervantes Kawanaugh, and some 20th century French Impressionistic music by Debussy.

Pianist Jacqueline Schwab has been widely heard for her distinctive performances infusing the sound tracks of Ken Burns’ documentaries, including Grammy-winning Civil War, Baseball, Lewis and Clark, Mark Twain, The War, The National Parks, and others.

Burns wrote: “Jacqueline Schwab brings more feeling and intensity to music than anyone I know. Her playing is insistent, physical, heartfelt and ... unusually moving.”

Critic Scott Alarik wrote she has “… an uncanny sensitivity to the moods and proprieties from other eras.” She has also performed on The Irish in America, Ric Burns’ New York: A Documentary Film and others and has been composer for documentaries on the painter Mary Cassatt and on Mennonites.

She has performed at the White House for President Clinton, and, with Scottish singer Jean Redpath, on public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion and on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman.

Jacqueline graduated from the New England Conservatory in Boston, majoring in piano improvisation. She has long played for English dancing with the Bare Necessities quartet, whose flowing, group improvisational style and nationwide performances have inspired new generations of dancers and dance musicians. She has performed solo and collaborative concerts, recorded, taught improvisation, and played for dancing in over forty US states. She is married to Rev. Edmund Robinson, former minister of the UU Meeting House in Chatham; they lived in Brewster until recently, before they moved to Lexington, MA.
