Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan
Friday 10th November 2017 -
“One of the world’s great cabaret singers… a genuine original, deploying warmth, high drama and sensitive musicality to reinvent everything she sings” ~ Time Out New York
2017 marks the 15th anniversary of Barb’s first Dylan collection ‘Every Grain Of Sand’, described by Wall Street Journal as “the most significant vocal album of the 21st century thus far”. Since then she has released a second recorded collection with new arrangements that have become mainstays of her live and recorded repertoire. Given that she won’t stop singing the bloody stuff, it’s fortunate the New York Times says she can “squeeze more juice out of a Dylan song than just about anybody”.
2016 was a big year for Dylan, or at least for his admirers, seeing him awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. This pleased Barb no end, as she has spent years describing him as America’s equivalent to Shakespeare. So, basically, the Nobel is all down to her, though Bob still hasn’t sent his thanks!
Barb’s electrifying show brings together the very best of her Dylan material, perfected over the past 15 years. Songs which are fierce, political, passionate and romantic, performed in a voice which is “shockingly expressive, with an astonishing palette of colours” (Observer).
