BARB JUNGR: HARD RAIN
The Songs of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen
With BARB JUNGR
TRACY STARK at the piano and percussionist MIKE LUNOE
Internationally acclaimed performer of Bob Dylan's work, Barb Jungr adds Leonard Cohen's songs of conscience for a defiant and revelatory experience of two of our greatest American songwriters.
This new collection brings together Barb's hardest-hitting set to date! Hard Rain features the political and philosophical songs of these two great music icons in her own contemporary arrangements.
59E59 is delighted to welcome Barb back for two weeks after her sold-out Dancing in the Dark show last December.
"BARB JUNGR INTERPRETS THEIR WORK WITH A FEROCITY AND TRUTHFULNESS THAT DEMOLISHES EVERY COVER VERSION YOU'VE EVER HEARD."
"A VOICE THAT CAN BE TENDER AS WELL AS CAUSTIC. HER ABILITY TO RUN THE EMOTIONAL GAMUT LENDS THE SHOW AN ASTOUNDING EMOTIONAL RANGE."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times. Read the full review here
"AN INTENSE, COMPELLING SHOW"
"THE WORLD'S LEADING INTERPRETER OF THE DYLAN DISCOGRAPHY"
"A THRILLING CABARET EVENING!"
The running time of Hard Rain is TBD.
