  • Show Description
  • Described as “Britain’s most gifted song stylist” and “one of Europe’s most intriguing and intelligent interpreters of the contemporary song” multi-award-winning vocalist Barb Jungr has successfully combined the intricacies of cabaret with the power of jazz to create a unique concept of popular music. For the EFG London Jazz Festival with rising jazz pianist Jamie Safir she presents the best of her Dylan, Sondheim and Cohen repertoire, and a little bit more.

     

    Interpreting the songs of Bob Dylan she truly found her forte and international acclaim. On Dylan’s recent 80th birthday she was named among The Times top ten artists who have covered his work, no mean feat to be on the same page as Johnny Cash, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix, Bryan Ferry, Chrissie Hynde and Stevie Wonder! Tonight she appears with one of jazz’s favourite pianists, Jamie Safir, who brings his own magic and flair to their work together.
