    BARB JUNGR | HARD RAIN TOUR The songs of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen Doors open 7.30pm ​ THE UK'S FINEST interpreter of song, Barb Jungr, brings her band to south Devon for a superlative set of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen classics as featured on her latest album, the acclaimed ‘Hard Rain’. "Barb Jungr's trio was in more assertive mode in Hard Rain, a four-star show built around her enthralling, soon-to-be-released collection of songs" The Times Often referred to as ‘the politicised chansonnier’ and cited as one of the world’s best performers of Dylan’s material, Barb turns her compelling, full-on singing style to his most politically hard-hitting songs along with Leonard Cohen’s most impassioned songs of conscience. "Jungr has refocused her acclaimed mastery at applying jazz and cabaret’s vocal arts to the rock era’s songs" The Independent A unique and enduring talent, Barb Jungr delivers emotionally charged and electrifying performances that shine fresh light on a superb collection of great song. "Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen: As much as you may think you know the songs of these two musical patriarchs, the British singer Barb Jungrinterprets their work with a erocity and truthfulness that demolishes every cover version you’ve ever heard" The New York Times Website: www.barbjungr.com

    One of the best interpreters of Jacques Brel and Bob Dylan anywhere on this angst ridden planet today" (Village Voice, New York) and "one of the best nightclub singers in the world" (Time Out New York), Jungr is “a fearless iconoclast who dives into the deepest waters of popular song to wrest exotic treasure from the ocean floor" (The New York Times). Her earlier Dylan collection, Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan: Every Grain of Sand (Linn Records 2002), which the Wall Street Journal called “the most significant vocal album of the 21st century thus far”, is now regarded as a cult classic album. Barb Jungr returns to the songs of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen with the release of Hard Rain this July. Over the past few years the British chanteuse has been wowing critics and audiences alike at home and abroad with her insightful, intelligent interpretations of well-loved songs combined with her powerful and often witty performance style. “The only word to describe her dramatic interpretations is revelatory…..I was open mouthed with astonishment.” -New York Times
