Barb Jungr & John McDaniel – Float Like a Butterfly on Sunday 14th October 2018
Internationally renowned singer Barb Jungr and Grammy & Emmy award winner John McDaniel are together again with their newest collaboration: Float Like A Butterfly – The Sting Songbook. This collection has audiences and critics glowing. The pair continue to have worldwide success with live concerts and the CD of their Beatles collection, Come Together, available worldwide. This new show features some of Sting’s best known and also lesser known songs, with Jungr as always bringing new meaning to classics “Fields of Gold”, “Message in a Bottle” & “Englishman in New York”, with McDaniel’s nonpareil musicality, harmonies and her radiant humor.
Barb Jungr is known for her extraordinary performances and interpretations of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Jacques Brel. Her numerous Linn Records releases have received rave 4 and 5 star reviews on both sides of the Atlantic, Australia and Europe. “It’s as if Edith Piaf and Nick Cave had a love-child, who was adopted by Carmen McRae” said Glam Adelaide. She’s '“One of the world’s great cabaret singers” Time Out New York and she '“Brings the same creativity for reinterpretation and re-examination that Ella Fitzgerald brought to Cole Porter.” said The Wall Street Journal.

He has accompanied stars including Betty Buckley, Tyne Daly, Brooke Shields and Patti LuPone, whose 1995 one-woman show he arranged and conducted.
