Special Notice

Barb Jungr, 2021Dear Friends and Supporters,

Spring has almost sprung and as we turn our gazes to the roses and the longest day I have lots of summer and autumn concerts for you on the live dates page.

Meanwhile the glorious Mike Lindup and I have been writing Soho Songs and there is a first performance of this new song cycle in development at Crazy Coqs on Monday June 20th with a superb cast and band. The cast of Lucinda Lawrence, Manon Taris, Nate Rogers and Robbie Noonan will sing 10 songs arranged for the trio of pianist Mark Edwards, drummer Darren Beckett and bassist Arnie Samogyi.

We are thrilled to premiere this at The Crazy Coqs and welcome you to come and listen and help us to see how to take this wonderful project forward, celebrating Soho in all it’s light and darkness. Bookings here.

I hope to see you at one of my dates or Soho Songs and meanwhile, in these difficult times, I send my love to one and all.

“A classy interpreter of Dylan and Cohen’s vision of the personal, the philosophical and the political. With two albums of Dylan behind her and a new recording of Famous Blue Raincoat, this is clearly a labour of love. A show which shouldn’t be missed” LouReviews

Broadway World review of Bob, Brel and Me at Joe’s Pub NYC - Feb 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
