On Thursday February 22, cabaret legend Barb Jungr will return to the Corn Exchange stage in Newbury, with her latest show, Float Like A Butterfly: The Sting Project.
An internationally acclaimed singer in the worlds of jazz and cabaret, Barb Jungr is renowned for her unique vocal style, interpretation of well-known songs, and highly skilled approach to re-arranging music. In this brand new show, she is joined by Grammy and Emmy award-winning pianist, John McDaniel, combining his transformative new arrangements for voice and piano with Barb’s infectious style to explore and reinvent Sting’s hit-laden songbook. This will include songs from Sting’s time both as a member of The Police, and as a solo artist, including Englishman in New York, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Fields of Gold, Fragile, King of Pain, and Roxanne.
Long-time Newbury favourite, Barb Jungr performed numerous times at the Corn Exchange’s former venue, New Greenham Arts, and played her last show there in June 2017, accompanied by piano powerhouse, John McDaniel.
The pair now make a welcome return to Newbury, with their exploration of Sting’s extensive jazz back catalogue.
Across her 40 plus year career, Barb has carved a significant reputation for combining immaculate vocal technique, impassioned performance, piercing insight and beautifully unexpected musical arrangements to reinterpret a century’s worth of European and American popular songs.
