Dear Friends and Supporters,
What times! What times we all share at the moment. Obviously in the immediate all my live performance and theatre work has been cancelled until things change. I am so sorry for all who have loved ones lost at this time under any circumstance and loved ones who are poorly or isolating. I am caring for my mum while this goes on the benefit of which is that she has company and manages to enjoy some life during her enforced isolation from anyone except me!
All is not lost artistically at this moment because I'm releasing a special song, meaningful to me, please do listen to it and, if you like it, please buy it, or stream it and please share the links with as many friends as possible. That would be beautiful. It’s released on April 10th and we have the choral parts for full choir singing of it and for choir with soloist. Get in touch for details please.
So this is where we are... Bob, Brel and Me will tour again when circumstances permit and as soon as that’s possible dates and venues will be up and on the site and on the mailouts. Make sure you are on the mailing list or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Barb releases In My Troubled Days, a song written last year with John McDaniel. The single is a duet with the wonderful Fourth Choir, with a video and a link for choral arrangements by John McDaniel.
Barb’s Bob, Brel and Me tour continues throughout 2020 with a premier performance at the extraordinary Wilton’s Music Hall where Barb promises Bob, Brel and Me with a difference.

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
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
