Barb Jungr - Walking In The Sun

This new show from Barb Jungr, one of Britain's leading voices, features her greatest musical and vocal passions: blues and gospel. Reinterpreting the material in her uniquely powerful yet intimate style, Barb delves deep to discover what the songs reveal about the world today. Accompanied by musicians Jenny Carr on piano and Jessica Laurens on keyboards, harmonica and percussion. Including classics such as Curtis Mayfield's 'People Get Ready', Leadbelly and Dylan's 'Brady and Duncan' and Dylan's 'Blind Willie McTell'. Jungr proves that she remains "Britain's leading chansonnier" (The Times 2005).

Walking In The Sun will be released this autumn.

Jungr is obviously a star. Her linking chat, which verges on stand-up, is disconcertingly honest and funny. - THE SCOTSMAN, AUGUST 2005

A rapidly rising star of the English cabaret world, she is a genuine original. She knows just how a song should feel - TIME OUT NEW YORK, 2004
