BARB JUNGR WITH SIMON WESTLAND & JAMIE SAFIR, Fri 7th August (FUNDRAISER)
LINEUP: Barb Jungr (Vocals), Simon Westfield (Piano) and Jamie Safir (Piano)
Musician, writer, composer, and lyricist Barb Jungr has been critically lauded for her insightful and passionate interpretive style, described as “revelatory” by the New York Times. Her deconstruction/reconstruction of popular songs and unusual and beautiful musical arrangements are characteristics that allow the listener new insights into familiar music. In recent years, Jungr has brought her singular talents to the songbooks of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, Jacques Brel, and more, creating the genre of the New American Songbook. Suppoerted here (remotely) by two outstanding accompianists Simon Westfield and Jamie Safir.
