DOUBLE BASS

Anneleen Boehme (°1989) is one of Belgium’s rare female double bass talents. She started playing the double bass at the age of 12. She studied at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague (Holland) with Frans van der Hoeven and she finished her studies of Music at the Conservatory of Antwerp, summa cum laude, with Nicolas Thys, in 2015. Master classes by i.a. Hans van Oosterhout, Larry Grenadier and Pierre Vaiana influenced her composing and bass playing a lot.

Although Anneleen is best known as the double bass player in LABtrio, she also plays in bands Frie Maline, Saragon and GIZMO, and with ‘kleinkunst’ singer Mira. With Fien Desmet she composes music for theatre. She’s extremely versatile, and even that is an understatement. No wonder she’s a frequently asked bass player in the jazz scene.
