    Cheltenham, GLS, UK | 8:00pm

    The songs of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. The UK’s finest interpreter of song, Barb Jungr returns to the songs of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen with the release of Hard Rain. Oft referred to as “the politicised chansonnier” and cited as one of the world’s best performers of Dylan’s material, Barb turns to six of his most politically hard-hitting songs along with five of Leonard Cohen’s most impassioned songs of conscience. Barb’s selection for Hard Rain reflects her despair with the political times that we live in and she has deliberately chosen songs that resonate as strongly today as they did when they were originally written: Blowin’ In The Wind is now 51 years old and its sentiments are as relevant today as they ever were. “One of the best interpreters of Jacques Brel and Bob Dylan anywhere on this angst ridden planet today” - Village Voice, New York “…a fantastic English singer … I was just amazed by her voice….” - Jeremy Irons – Desert Island Discs “possibly our best interpreter of Dylan’s songs” - Billy Bragg "Bob Dylan, jazz, northern soul, Nina Simone and continental Europe’s cabaret music perform a subtle dance in Jungr’s consciousness” - The Guardian
