Maud Hixson

Hailed as “gently virtuosic” (All About Jazz), Maud Hixson is a devoted exponent of great songs, ranging from the classic Great American Songbook to the often unsung or forgotten compositions awaiting rediscovery.

Maud debuted her newest show, Skyscraper Wits, in London and New York last year, and released her latest recording, “Listening For Your Song”, in June, which features music from the pre-Songbook era.

Based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Maud is the co-founder of the continental jazz sextet French 75 with clarinetist Tony Balluff. She made her Guthrie Theater debut in the Noel Coward revue Coward’s Women, and teamed with Sir Richard Rodney Bennett in 2012 for the long-running Midtown at Midday concert series at Saint Peter’s in Manhattan.
