Special Notice

Hi Everyone, 

Hola, guten morgan, bonjour, I hope you and your families remain in good health in these strange times but it is with joy that I am able to announce new live dates! Socially distant obviously but please go to the news and live dates section to see where we will be (London the 606 Jazz Club, Oxfordshire The Red Lion, Crazy Coqs and Shoreham Ropetackle Arts Centre). 

Once again I want to say a huge thank you to you all for your support during this time when as you know we could not work in the usual ways. And remember if you want a gig in a garden let us know please we can do almost anything. 

Sign up for the newsletter here to have all the things we are finding sent ahead of time!

And the wonderful Simon Wallace and I have recorded Dancing In The Dark which we had performed live some years ago and Simon has done a beautiful production which we made in lockdown and is out now.

There’s a lovely lockdown promo video Simon has made which accompanies the release (27th June) on Kristalyn (catalogue number is KristaDB1) and it’s - well I think - beautiful. It’s a song I’ve loved and a sentiment that somehow seems to fit these times.

We hope you can have the best remaining summer possible and look forward to seeing you at one of these dates or check in and stream us live because that’s now a real thing!

Love, peace and good health to you all,  Barb

Bob, Brel and Me - New album reviews

Broadway World review of Bob, Brel and Me at Joe’s Pub NYC - Feb. 20, 2020
Barb Jungr's committed performances of material by Bob Dylan, Jacques Brel, and herself make for a powerful set. Her delightfully quirky humor, with some cutely bristling impatience at the folly of human nature, is welcome comic relief between highly emotional, word-dense songs. Whether cheeky or choked-up with feeling, this artist (I don't use the word casually) commands attention and affection. Read full review

Kind of Jazz ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Barb's voice in fine fettle, and as always, her read on the lyrics is spot-on. Read full review

Something Else
The vocals are powerfully delivered in Barb Jungr’s inimitable style – classy, full on, a touch of the mischievous and complete conviction. Read full review
