  • Show Description
  • For this concert, Barb Jungr will be dusting off and sprucing up her world famous and critically acclaimed Chanson repertoire.

    For this album (her first on Linn Records), Barb opted to use specially commissioned translations by Des de Moor and Robb Johnson for her English language renditions; the songs losing nothing in their careful translation whilst allowing Barb to fully explore and explain the emotions within the songs.

    Chanson: The Space In Between saw Barb return to her European roots which had previously been overshadowed in performance by American genres such as blues, gospel and jazz.

    “I wanted to do something very different with it (No Regrets) and this version, which is the translation Piaf herself used in English, seemed to me so much more modern than the usual one. A really contemporary ‘find yourself’ song, a ‘Thelma and Louise’ chanson.”


    “Bob Dylan, jazz, northern soul, Nina Simone and continental Europe’s cabaret music perform a subtle dance in Jungr’s consciousness” – ★ ★ ★ ★ The Guardian

    “A true musical alchemist, she is truly a marvel, who should not be missed” – ★ ★ ★ ★ Telegraph

    “Barb Jungr is a timeless performer who never loses her star quality. In her Bob Dylan show we see what can only be described as a masterclass in cabaret perfection.” – ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The Reviews Hub
