Legendary UK vocalist, Dylan and Cohen interpreter, performer and raconteur Barb Jungr will celebrate her 70th year with a three-night residency of different material each performance with different accompanists and colleagues.

She says: “Who knew? 70! So what to do? Go sit in a box? NO! I've worked with several people who found their careers catapulted to the skies after 70 so they're my role models - Marilyn Maye, my beloved Elaine Stritch turning 80 and singing Sondheim and swearing like a trouper as always. So I'm optimistic. And at this point I feel lucky to have sung with the best in the UK and USA and recorded what 20 plus albums and  25 years of Dylan and Cohen and more, and worked across the world and, come on,  still have my own teeth…..largely. So I'm singing into my 70's and if I am lucky enough into my 80's and 90's. Watch out world, I plan on singing myself out the door.

“There will be three nights of performances, each with different material from my 45-year repertoire. On the May 9 it will be Jenny Carr and I with Dark Love, Chansons and More. On the 10th Simon Wallace and I will rediscover the years we spent on rivers and Bob Dylan and on the 11th my dear and highly awarded American friend John McDaniel and I will revisit The Beatles and Sting.”
