Barb Jungr's name might seem to be missing vowels, but there's no need to call in Vanna White.

The British chanteuse extraordinaire fills in all the blanks with her exciting interpretations of songs by folk poet Bob Dylan, as demonstrated in her new show at the Metropolitan Room called The Man in the Long Black Coat: Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan.

A cabaret act of Dylan songs done by a woman who seems to combine parts of Dorothy Loudon, Helen Reddy, and Russell Brand?

Yes, and it's wonderful because Jungr is as different from Dylan as you can get -- she's female, energetic, dryly witty, and crisp -- so the contrast makes for surprise, not to mention strongly acted vocals, comically incisive monologues, and carefully enunciated lyrics.

Yes, you can understand the words, lol!

In every way!

From a fiery, exultant "The Times They Are A-Changing" to a silky-soft "Sara" and beyond, Barb gets to the heart of the songs while blowing into your consciousness like a rllng stn.

Fill in your own vowels there.

The elderly statesman of music has collided with forms ranging from folk to glam rock and many in between and has left them richer, altered forever. In every endeavour he opened new gates and redefined what can be treated as art. Dylan the unquestionable ‘poet laureate’ of the rock started with folk and transcended the form by owning it. He lent poetic nuances to the protest movement that was shrieking around him in early sixties. He was the reluctant hero who was seen as the voice of his times. Since then he has been conducting a ceaseless and successful campaign to break one rock archetype after another.http://modernartists.blogspot....

I wish I could be as charming and witty as Alex Stay. Is he being ironic or is he just a w*nk*r?
