Barb Jungr, the UK’s finest interpreter of song, has long been associated with the work of the legendary singer/songwriters Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, wowing audiences and critics worldwide with her powerful reinterpretations of their material.
Her ‘Hard Rain’ collection of 2014 received 5-star rave reviews on 3 continents and her live performance of the political songs of Dylan and Cohen ran for three weeks of sold-out performances in New York. For this performance Barb will be focusing on Cohen’s wide repertoire from ‘Famous Blue Raincoat’ through to ‘So Long Marianne’ and ‘The Future’.
Accompanied by the noted pianist, Jennie Carr who has played with everyone to Jason Donovan to Claire Martin and Beverley Craven, Barb breathes something new and incredibly special into every lyric and melody you thought you knew.
From her early beginnings on the then fledgling London alternative cabaret circuit, through almost every musical genre this cult performer’s interpretive work defies categorisation.
Barb Jungr’s increasingly rare live performances are unmissable, and this special show will include such Leonard Cohen gems as ‘The Future’, ‘Suzanne’, ‘So Long Marianne’, ‘Famous Blue Raincoat’ and ‘Take This Longing’. “Barb Jungr’s voice has established her as a superb interpreter of the great song-books……” – The Independent.
