Special Notice

Dear Friends,

It’s almost Christmas and many of you will already have put trees and lights up and now there’s something to raise a glass and go “Cheers” to, to add to the joy of the season in what has been a dark year for everyone and a very dark year for some.

The Little Angel Theatre film of Mother Christmas is available to view, for free at The Little Angel Theatre YouTube Page (please do make a donation if you can).

Mother Christmas Saves The Day - Barb Jungr and the Pixie Chorus

I am thrilled to say I co-wrote it with the wonderful artistic director of The Little Angel, Samantha Lane. I wrote the music and there is a Christmas single taken from the film of the title track (recorded and arranged by the wonderful Jenny Carr, Jonathan Lee, and with Taryn Sudding and Christoph Bracher’s help on Pixie chorus and mix). You can buy it very reasonably here!

I'm thrilled that Nate Rogers has recorded Christmas is Coming in this beautiful rendition with Simon Wallace's production of the song I wrote with Jessica for the Three Courgettes all this years ago... Have a listen here, it's available to buy on Bandcamp and stream at all of the usual places.

Also the talk I gave this week which was a joy, for the institute of ideas, is now available to watch online here (also free).

Thank you all for your support and kindness, not just to me but to all of the other artists you have supported during this period. It's impossible to let you know how much we appreciate everything, but we do.

I hope that you and your families and friends remain safe and well and have the best holiday possible, a very Merry Christmas to you all.

With Love and and hope for Peace on Earth,

Barb

Bob, Brel and Me - New album reviews

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

Something Else
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
