Barb Jungr's special One-off Christmas Show - From Bob Dylan To Leonard Cohen & More
Saturday, December 8th
A special seasonal feel-good collection from Barb Jungr and her wonderful musicians, pianist Jenny Carr and double bassist Dudley Phillips. Widely regarded as among the very top drawer of British jazz singers, Barb Jungr has wowed audiences and critics worldwide with her powerful reinterpretations of many popular songwriters including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Ray Davies, Joni Mitchell, many of which will be featured in the show. The Telegraph called her “Electrifying... the top rank of jazz singers….a true musical alchemist who should not be missed …”. Internationally known for her passionate singing, minimal and subtle arrangements, and great humour, Barb Jungr is the definitive performer of one of the great musical icons of the 20th century, Bob Dylan and for this special show she of course includes a Dylan song or two among the Christmas favourites. Variously described by critics as magnificent, mesmerizing and magical, Barb Jungr has perfected the art of interpretation to such a level that listeners are often astonished to discover that well-known songs that they thought they knew, have been wonderfully transformed and elevated when Barb weaves her magic spell. This unique show promises Xmas songs you’ll know, and perhaps some you won’t, alongside Barb’s own peerless arrangements of some of her best loved numbers such as Joni Mitchell’s “River”, The Kinks, “Waterloo Sunset”, Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” and the Xmas classic, “Have Yourself A Merry little Christmas” among others.
