Flute and Saxophone
Jan’s experience on the flute spans over thirty years. In addition to her classical background, Jan is able to improvise easily with most styles of music. She is the principal flutist and long-time board member of the Tri-County Symphonic Band. In addition to flute, Jan plays saxophone and is a member of the Pennsport String Band. Jan records and performs with various other artists in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area. She is a proud supporter of the Philadelphia Folksong Society and many other area organizations.
Currently Jan is part of the flute and guitar duo, Rusty and Jan. Their collaboration began in December 2000 when they were each recruited by a mutual friend to play in a Christmas Eve service. Following the event they agreed to explore how their divergent backgrounds would complement each other. Together, they create a modern and innovative interpretation of many well known songs. They play a diverse assortment of styles including classical, originals, popular, and folk (to name a few). They are available for many venues including: Coffee Houses, Bars, Senior Centers, House Concerts, Weddings & other special events. Rusty and Jan are also band members of Fluteous Maximus
- Weddings & Cocktail Hours

"Jan has added a richness and a depth
to my music in a way that is unique from any
other collaboration. Her ability to complement
any musical project is astounding."
