Bob, Brel & Me - T01098057573Barb Jungr's reputation as ?one of the world's great cabaret singers' (Time Out New York) may have gone to her head, as she will now only sing songs by writers whose names start with the letter B. But this means she can return to two colossi of popular song, whose writing has helped define her whole career. Any performance of an existing song is a conversation between the writer and the singer, and the conversation between Bob, Brel and Barb is a particularly stimulating one, not least because of the way in which gender informs all of their work. Things could get heated. Uh-oh. In this brand new collection for 2019, Barb turns her acclaimed ability at reinvention and reinterpretation to a set of Dylan and Brel songs she has never tackled before on stage, all in original arrangements. They include 'Les coeurs tendres' (The tender hearts), 'Voir un ami pleurer' (To see a friend break down and cry), 'Mr Tambourine Man' and 'This Wheel's on Fire.

Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan - T0563746153This electrifying show brings together the very best of the Dylan material that Barb Jungr has perfected over the past 15 years. Songs which are fierce, political, passionate and romantic, performed in a voice which is "shockingly expressive, with an astonishing palette of colours" (The Observer), something which may or may not be true of Dylan's own vocal technique. But whilst he might not schlep to Scandinavia to collect, this is a songwriter of genius who always delivers.
