Jeanne Kuhns-Music

I love to sing, I love to write about the world around me which is messy and fragile, brilliant, hopeless and hopeful, brave and terrifying. I have a lot of experience relating to people from my years as a nurse, and for the last 18 years have been offering my music as medicine to audiences that need a little hope, clarity, and honesty. I just love sharing my insights with you and learning from your stories.I love to sing for women's groups, art openings, house concerts, coffee shops, auditoriums, alone or with Small Forest, George Sawyn, the Buckets of Rain Band or anyone who will share a song with me. Community and connectivity is everything. 


So here is a bit about who I sing with most!!

Small Forest

The Mother /Daughter singer/songwriter band of Jeanne Kuhns and Marybeth Mattson share lead vocals and harmonies equally, merging both women's songwriting styles and musical backgrounds. Soaring harmonies, lyrical word paintings and melodies that nestle in your heart.  Pure magic!

Jeanne Kuhns and George Sawyn

A powerful pairing of Kuhn's powerful vocals, capable of low earthy rivers to clear high flights and Sawyn's masterful and versatile Jazz, Blues, Rock, Classical guitar style. Offering an all original show of songs arranged with Sawyn's gifted playing or a show of favorite standards that thrill our senses and intellect from the 1930's on up. 


Jeanne sings solo sometimes, just her expressive voice and simple rhythm guitar. Performing her original songs, impressions of life with strong connections to nature and stories that have etched an experience in her heart. She has a passion for the natural world and saving it, connections between people and the struggles and miracles of surviving every day life, her voice nuanced and capable of expressing her emotions with a low breathy voice which carries up in to bell tones.  She'll sing the national anthem at your graduation or Amazing Grace at a funeral, or give an intimate performance for a womens gathering, not much of a dance band tho!!
