Passionate, original & inventive interpretation of jazz and soul: Magnificent

Barb Jungr vocals, Barry Green piano, Davide Mantovani bass


Last May, Barb’s Fleece performance, featuring Dylan and Leonard Cohen songs, generated a rapturous reception and a long queue for her CD “Hard Rain”.

Driving on a motorway somewhere in the East (was it from our gig?) Barb decided she wanted to make a recording in New York. The result was a collaboration, with Grammy winning American pianist and arranger Laurence Hobgood, to produce the 2016 CD “Shelter From The Storm” with Jungr - Hobgood originals, plus songs by Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Dave Bowie, Sondheim & Bernstein and Rogers & Hammerstein. This year, Barb’s program comprises mostly material from this CD.

Barb has the brilliant pianist Barry Green and stunning bassist David Mantovani to support her.

"Bob Dylan, jazz, northern soul, Nina Simone and continental Europe’s cabaret music perform a subtle dance in Jungr’s consciousness." - The Guardian
"Barb Jungr is the alchemist among jazz singers. She takes dubious songs, and turns them into gold. And she takes songs we already knew were gold, and makes them interestingly different." - Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph.
