Charlie Jennison

Instrument: Sax, alto

Born: September 26, 1947

The definition of a working musician is someone who plays, teaches, writes, arranges, and records music. As an established performing musician in the New Hampshire music scene for decades, multi-instrumentalist Charlie Jennison has done all of that—and more. Since Charlie has been known to play not only piano and all of the saxophones as well as flute, clarinet, & piccolo, but also percussion, bass, and a variety of indigenous instruments from around the world, musicians from Portland to Boston who know Charlie joke that if you handed Charlie a cheeseburger, he’d figure out how to play “Yankee Doodle” on it!
