Janne E. Irvine is an author, pianist, musicologist, and Jane Austen enthusiast who has created a concert and play that allow her to bring to life one of Austen's most popular works, Emma. From her piano keyboard, dressed in a Regency-era gown, Janne performs as all of the major characters from the book, while demonstrating both the music of the era and her interpretation of each character's playing style.

Janne Irvine's eyesight was damaged shortly after her birth, and slowly grew worse over time. Her recently published autobiography, Making Friends with Other Trees and Flowers: A Story of Low Vision and High Expectations demonstrates her remarkable memory.
