Barb Jungr:

Cult icon performer and singer Barb Jungr joins jazz star, composer and arranger, pianist Jamie Safir to present songs from their 5 star collaboration Bob, Brel and Me and more, celebrating the songs of Dylan, Brel, Cohen, Springsteen, Sondheim alongside original material in these 2 special shows for Hampstead Jazz Club.

Across her 40 year career she has been internationally acclaimed for combining immaculate vocal technique, impassioned performance, piercing insight and beautifully unexpected musical arrangements to reinterpret European and American popular songs in a manner which The New York Times described as ”revelatory”.

What you might not know is that as a live performer, Barb Jungr is always funny, and often hilarious. Like, intentionally. Cabaret Scenes described a performance in November 2016 as “the funniest hour of cabaret I’ve ever seen” from a “world-class raconteur”. Originally emerging from the alternative cabaret scene of the 1970s and 80s, and cutting her teeth alongside the likes of Julian Clary, Alexei Sayle and Arnold Brown, her ability to deliver shows which are utterly alive, and spontaneously respond to the world in and outside the performance space, is second to none.

If you are only familiar with Barb’s work from her albums, you simply have to see her perform live. Even the highest quality mp3 in the world won’t tell you what it’s like to be in a room with her and her musicians.

Jungr received the New York Nightlife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist, the Backstage Bistro Award for Best International Artist, and Time Out New York’s #1 Top Live Cabaret Act for 2011. Her powerful singing style reaches across musical boundaries.
