Mae Barnes - Music Artist Band Bio

Biography

Born 23 January 1907, New York City, New York, USA, d. 13 December 1996. Barnes learned to play the piano at the age of eight and soon after that could be found tap-dancing in the streets for pennies. By the time she was 12 she was in the chorus line at the Plantation CluBorn She appeared in the Noble Sissle-Eubie Blake show, Shuffle Along, in 1920/1, where Bill "Bojangles" Robinson was the principal dancer. Although she had done some singing it was not until 1938, when a car accident resulted in a fractured pelvis, that she began to concentrate upon this aspect of her talents. She appeared in the last of Ziegfeld Follies but her career was thereafter relatively obscure. She did, however, visit the UK in 1950, starring in Jack Hylton's Knights Of Madness, headlining a bill that included in its smaller print the budding comic Peter Sellers. While in London, she played a six-week engagement at the Colony CluBorn Barnes's singing style was very much of its day with somewhat mannered diction but with a rhythmic energy reflecting the milieu in which she had developed.
