Jean sparkles in Britain's Got Talent 2011

After 30 years on stage Jean has realised her lifelong dream of hitting the national headlines for her energetic keyboard playing.

Studio audiences and TV viewers alike rocked and cheered as she bounced her way into the final of this year's competition.

The BGT National Tour followed immediately after the ITV series and Jean thrilled audiences the length and breadth of the nation.

 

 

Itʼs fair to say that Jean Martyn captured the viewersʼ hearts in this yearʼs competition with her bubbly personality and energetic playing.

Jean sailed through the Britainʼs Got Talent audition process. Then by popular demand was voted by the public and judges into the finals, where she had everyone dancing along with her infectious performance.

Picking up positive praise from Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff, Jean is now the nationʼs favourite organist and party starter.

Jean also appeared on the “Britainʼs Got MORE talent” show hosted by Stephen Mulhern where he enjoyed the support of Peter Andre, Stacey Solomon and Louis Walsh who all tipped her to win the contest.

She has already received huge support and interest since appearing on BGT, including interviews on ITVʼs This Morning and local radio plus much coverage in the regional press.

 

There can be few who do not look forward to enjoying the bubbling personality of the Queen of the Keyboard - Jean Martyn.

She moves effortlessly between grand piano, electronic keyboards, mighty 1930’s Wurlitzers and Compton cinema organs. Jean’s ange of music is vast, extending from classical to jazz and modern dance.

Jean truly excels when playing her own magnificent arrangements of music from the great West End musicals then switching instantly to rock&roll with Jerry Lee Lewis and ‘Great Balls of Fire’ !

 

Jean regularly performs on classical, theatre and electronic organs with up to five keyboards, as well as classical, jazz and cocktail piano etc.

Jean is available for bookings for TV, radio, events and parties, corporate and private, as well as weddings and dinner-dance functions.
