Barb Jungr will return to London’s Crazy Coqs this Spring with 6 live performances.
From her early beginnings on the fledgling London alternative cabaret circuit, through almost every musical genre, Barb Jungr’s work has often defied categorisation. Accompanied by some of the best live musicians in Britain her increasingly rare live appearances are unmissable.
Over the coming months she will bring 3 of her best loved shows to the West End’s Crazy Coqs.
The live shows begin with Barb Jungr: Chanson on Friday 31 March. For this concert, Jungr will dust off her world famous and critically acclaimed Chanson repertoire. Chanson: The Space In Between saw Barb return to her European roots which had previously been overshadowed in performance by American genres such as blues, gospel and jazz. Jungr said “I wanted to do something very different with it (No Regrets) and this version, which is the translation Piaf herself used in English, seemed to me so much more modern than the usual one. A really contemporary ‘find yourself’ song, a ‘Thelma and Louise’ chanson.”
Barb Jungr and John McDaniel: The Best of The Beatles and Sting. Running 27 & 29 April at 7pm, Barb Jungr and John McDaniel come together in 2 rare UK performances to celebrate the songs of The Beatles and Sting with their breathtaking, inspiring and often unexpected arrangements.
Songs will include their much loved arrangements of Until, The Long and Winding Road, Fragile, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, King of Pain, Fields of Gold and I Will amount many more.
Barb Jungr and her Trio: My Marquee runs for 3 performances on 18-20 May at 7pm. Jungr brings her brand new collection, “My Marquee”, turning her attention to some of the greatest songs in British pop history with her trio of musicians.
Taking classic songs from bands and songwriters who performed at the legendary Soho venue The Marquee, Barb and her long standing collaborator Jenny Carr, with Jonathan Lee on drums and Dudley Phillips on bass reimagine, reinvent and shine new light on these great songs including Substitute (The Who), Paper Sun (Traffic), Living In The Past, (Jethro Tull), Shapes of Things to Come (The Yardbirds) and Flower In The Rain (The Move) among many more. Alongside these Barb will perform a selection of her favourite Cohen and Dylan songs.
