Barb Jungr:Love Me Tender

An uncharted journey into The King's legacy

Barb Jungr, regarded as Britain's foremost chansonnier and finest song stylist, takes the songs of Elvis Presley and embarks on a journey through love, loneliness, obsession and finally, faith. The show features some of Presley's most well known songs as well as the gospel and Bob Dylan songs he sang. With the accompaniment of Britain's top musicians and stunning arrangements, the songs and their history come together, and we hear the lyrics anew. Jungr's witty interactions with her audiences and vocal virtuosity have led to comparisons with Piaf, Nina Simone, Bette Midler, and Janis Joplin. In her blending of jazz, European cabaret and humour, she is unique. Barb Jungr won the prestigious New York Backstage Award for Best International Artist in 2003.
